I’m pleased to announce that my portrait called “Protest Portrait #1: Trysten” has won first place in the Hopkinton Center for the Arts’ juried national exhibit called “About What’s Going On.”
Two Protest Portraits were chosen for the exhibit. It includes work from 45 artists around the U.S. that speaks to the experience of the pandemic, the upsurge of consciousness of racism, our damaged economy, or our conflicted politics.
Congratulations to the other winners, and to all the other artists whose work was chosen for this successful show. You can see the work here, through August 31, 2020: https://about.artcall.org/pages/web-gallery
August 17, 2020 update: I was surprised to receive a check for $300 in the mail today as the First Place prize. I have donated it to Black Lives Matter. If you’d like to donate, you can do it here: https://blacklivesmatter.com
