As part of the selection process, the other 8 artists who were in the top 12 will also have an Artist Showcase feature. The artists who were selected for the Artist Showcase feature (with one Artist Showcase being be posted every 2 weeks beginning on January 15th) are; Dixon Bergman, Maureen Ravnik, Catherine Pickop, durga Garcia, Gerald Chodak, Lyn Darlington, Anita Marci and William Nourse.
The Solo Art Series took place within a extremely competitive atmosphere. The task of selecting only four artists from the 87 artists who entered was extremely challenging. The high quality of submissions made creating the final rankings excruciating.
The competitive process considered not only the quality and depth of the artist’s work but also the overall entry presentation, including the artist’s biography and artist’s statement.
Out of 87 artists who submitted to the Solo Art Series, 9 were eliminated due to deficiencies in their Biography, Artist’s Statement or art. From the 78 artists who were left, 30 artists were eliminated, with 48 Artists being placed in the semi finals. From that point, another 13 were eliminated with 35 artists being placed in the finals.
From the finals group the gallery then chose the final 12 artists, with 4 artists being named for the Solo’s and 8 artists for the Artist Showcases. We feel that the majority of the 35 finalists could have easily been included in the final group of 12 artists.
Each winning Solo Artist will be promoted and circulated to over 1000+ News Outlets, Premium FOX, CBS, NBC, CW Affiliated Sites, 500 TV & Radio Sites, 250 Regional & Industry Sites and Social Media Inclusion through Kjprnews.com.
