The gallery’s competition for July 2017 was the 7th Annual “Botanicals” Art Competition. 2D and 3D artists (including photography) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s August 2017 online group art exhibition.
Artists were asked for their interpretation of the theme “Botanicals” by submitting their best representational or abstract art. The “Botanical” theme will be the artist’s interpretation and depiction of botanical and floral art. Botanical subjects will include flowers, herbs, fruit, leaves, plants and related botanical and floral subjects.
The art competition and the submission process for the artists began in June 2017 and concluded on July 27, 2017. The gallery received 720 entries from 17 different countries from around the world, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, France, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. In addition, the gallery received entries from 37 different states.
The exhibition has been divided into three media categories. Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital Media and 3 Dimensional Art. In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from the 3 media categories.
The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.
