In the following pages you’ll meet the winners of our annual Artistic Excellence competition.
By Bonnie Gangelhoff
Culled from thousands of entries, these paintings captured our attention. As in years past, the competition was open to artwork in all mediums from anywhere in the world. Four of this year’s winners live in Australia, Japan, and Canada, and the rest hail from the West and Midwest. Congratulations to the first-, second-, and third-place honorees and the 10 honorable mentions. Peruse the winning paintings and enjoy the talents of some of the finest artists working in realism today.
