The 23rd Annual Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibition opened June 7 in Bennington, Vermont. Bennington Center for the Arts hosted this year’s show which included a few days of festivities followed by the awards ceremony. Although I didn’t attend the show since the birth of our new baby took precedence, I was pleased to learn that my painting The Chase (24×24 inches, oil on linen panel, pictured above) was awarded the Presidents’ Award of Excellence. It’s a $1,000 cash award funded by the past presidents of the OPA. I am honored to be awarded among so many highly-regarded painters, many of whom I have admired for quite some time. Thank you to award judge Charles Movalli and to the Oil Painters of America! The exhibition remains on display through July 27, 2014.
