Best in Show
Leila Namin
60” x 36”
Wonderfully expressive and dramatic. Everything worked for me, from the illustrative style, balance, color, texture and the faces; seen and unseen. It leaves me wanting more and I keep coming back to it, finding different ways to interpret the piece each time.

I was drawn in to the mysterious aspect of this piece...the mood in which it invoked. What you see in shadow and in the light are each as important. The color and balance...perfect. The story is intriguing and invokes a variety of feelings and emotions. I liked what I don’t get to know about this piece, as much as what
I do know.

3rd Place: Susan Fecho, The Old Shed, Winter Expo 2012, Infinity Art Gallery
3rd Place Award:
Susan Fecho
The Old Shed
18” x 36”

There is a dream like story here, a memory, a hint of the past, and perhaps the future. I was drawn in by the simple gesture of line and washes of ink, just enough to create the contrast and keep me interested.

Founder's Choice Award:
Chuck Sharbaugh

A masterfully crafted and conceived work of art. Chuck Sharbaugh's architectural furniture is a metaphor for the human story; an intricate structure of combined religious and political symbols and forms contains, and often hides, a complex internal story of ingenuity and power.

—Founder, Charly Swing

Director's Choice Award:
Melanie Rothman

Melanie Rothman masterfully captures the ugly face of hatred. Viewing "Revelations" is simultaneously uncomfortable and compelling.
My eye is drawn to the snarling nose and the downcast eyes -- one in shadow hinting at potential violence.
I don't want to see this face. I want to turn away and pretend this hatred doesn't exist.

— Gallery Director, Julie Weismann
