International Art Competition

I found out today that my painting, "Call Unto Your God", was selected to be exhibited for the Eighth International Art Competition: Remembering the Great Things of God exhibition to be held at its new venue in the Conference Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

It was selected out of thousands of on-line entries to be delivered to the Church History Museum where it was judged once again to determine whether or not it would hang in the exhibition. The painting was chosen, during this second round of judging, from among 1149 entries of Latter-day Saint artists around the world. The painting will be on display at the Conference Center from March 20 through October 11.

The exhibit opens Friday evening March 20 with an announcement of award winners at 6:00 pm in the Conference Center Theater followed by a reception in the Grand Atrium Foyer through 9:00 pm. You can also view the artworks and prize winners at the Church web site--www.lds.org/museum beginning March 21.

A list of exhibited works and winners will be distributed the evening of the opening and will be available during the period of the exhibition.

I am not surprised this painting was chosen, it is so dynamic both in composition and brush work. Very nice. I am glad i discovered your art.
