On Saturday June 7 we had our 2014 Art Comes Alive Opening Night Awards Ceremony. This annual, international fine arts contest and exhibition continues to grow in size and caliber each year.
The range and talent this year is extraordinary. We not only have every medium and subject imaginable represented, but we also have work from all over the nation -and world!- showcased. From your beloved local artists to talent you've never had the privilege to see. With 160 works of art that has traveled from New York, California, Canada, even Ireland and Norway; Art Comes Alive is the epitome of all art shows. The Pièce de résistance.
The gallery was buzzing with energy. We had 250 artists, sponsors, jurors, family and friends come to see the show and support one another during a beautiful awards ceremony where we gave away 70+ awards to deserving fine artists.
The food, by Elegant Fare, was vibrantly colorful and delicious and the classical guitar by Rick Wiley set the stage for a warm environment and evening of art and celebration.
Art Comes Alive Opening Night celebrates you: the artist. Your hard work, the commitment to your craft, your perseverance, and of course your incredible talent. We appreciate your willingness to take risks and share your art with us and we acknowledge your outstanding work as being the very best. Thank you for bringing more beauty into this world and for joining us in the celebration! It's an honor to work with you and to experience your magnificent work.
