Special Honor AwardsACA also has some very special awards like Lifetime Achievement (Male & Female) and Emerging Artist of the Year.
"It is truly an honor to be included in this showcase of talent. Awards are given at the end of the night. In 2012 I was surprised to be given a Purchase Award. I did not anticipate any award in 2013. Imagine my surprise when the last award was given for “Lifetime Achievement Award” and my name was called. My painting was shown on a screen that had to be 20 feet wide and my name was larger than life. I was absolutely stunned. I received a beautiful glass statue with my name engraved on it and a ribbon. While I made my way to the stage, Litsa mentioned some of the highlights of my artistic journey. To be honored for what you love to do is a rare and wonderful experience. It serves to validate the long and solitary hours in the studio. I savored every minute."
Art Comes Alive is proud to be one of the few Call to Artists with such a vast array of awards helping artists thrive in their career. Not only do we award money, we award opportunity, crucial connections, and exposure. deadline to submit artwork is midnight may 1st!
