Announcing the Winner and the five Honorable Mentions for Painting & Drawing


Painting & Drawing

This is the category for artists whose essential media are paint on paper, canvas or other medium. Or drawing. This group can include any colored medium applied over a relatively flat surface. Although, some dimensionality is fine. If you have collaged your work, but it is essentially painted or drawn, you may include that in this category. Or you may also include it in the Experimental Category.

If you are a Viewer and visitor, please take a look below at some of the art that has been created in the 9 counties of the Bay Area in this first ever regional series of art prizes. There are other categories you will find very interesting, please visit this one and all the others as well.

And if you are a viewer, please consider donating a tax-deductible donation or perhaps purchase a print from some other Bay Area artists who want to sell some of their work to help fund this first ever regional Prize for Art!

If you are an artist and you participate in the Prize, you will sign up and then upload up to eight (8) of your works of art for $10 each. Your work will be reviewed and then placed up on this website for everyone to see, in this or one or more of the other juried categories. Your work will be eligible for a Winning Prize or one of eleven (11) Honorable mentions in this category.
