Sometimes it’s difficult to put into words everything that Art Comes Alive is for our gallery and our artists. The evening is truly a special and unique moment where we can celebrate the artistic talents of so many artists on a magnified scale (and no, I’m not just talking about the 20-foot screen we had this year at the awards ceremony). Simply put, there is no other art competition and exhibit out there that celebrates as many artists with such diverse talents and medium specialties as Art Comes Alive.  

A huge thank you goes out to all our ACA artist finalists who exhibited in this year’s art show. YOU are a continuous fountain of inspiration and motivation behind this incredible event. We know it’s not easy to put your artwork out there, but the celebration and recognition is well worth it in the end. Thank you to our incredible panel of jurors who find the time in their busy art-filled lives to rank all the submissions. Thank you to our partners, whose passion for collecting art supports hundreds of artists year after year. Thank you to our loving community of friends and family who came out to support us! And finally, thank you to my amazing staff who work so hard to make this the best art competition and exhibit in the nation.
