Our art competition for September was the 5th Annual “SeaScapes” and 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 October 2015 online group art exhibition. The “SeaScapes” theme was considered to be any art with the subjects being scenes of coastal living, any ocean activities, seaside vistas and any related seashore subjects for inclusion into this art exhibition.
The Guest Judge for this competition is Mallory Whitfield. She began her journey as a creative entrepreneur in 2004, selling her handmade creations at local craft shows.

Here are Mallory’s thoughts on the entries, “It was hard to pick a winner, as there was such a diverse range of artistic styles. But it was so much fun to look through the submissions and see how differently each artist interpreted the theme of SeaScapes. The theme really resonated with me — I grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and I always feel at home when I’m near the water. All of the entries were beautiful representations of the sea. The participants should all feel very proud of their work!”
