Yesterday’s awards ceremony and reception marked the end of the 2016 Allied Artists of America 103rd Annual Exhibition. The caliber of work that graced the walls (& pedestals) was outstanding and I was honored to have my work hanging alongside so many artists whom I have long admired. Being awarded the AAA Gold Medal of Honor in an exhibit of this quality is all the more meaningful and was nothing short of overwhelming. Many thanks to awards juror, art historian and author, Carter Ratcliff and to Allied Artists of America for letting me be a part of this exhibit.
I am so grateful to have had this unforgettable experience and to have been able to share the afternoon with so many wonderful people.
A big congratulations to all the award winners and to all the artists selected for this prestigious exhibit!
