Thank You to All Artists who Submitted Your Entries!
We are grateful to the artists who submitted their entries for our 8th "Celebrate The Healing Power of ART" juried exhibition. We received extraordinary images in a range of mediums by artists from around the United States as well as from Canada, and as far away as Romania, Finland, India, UK, France, Turkey, Israel, New Zealand and Sweden.
It was extremely challenging to select the winners because the entries are outstanding.
Purpose of "Celebrate The Healing Power of ART" 2013
This exhibition is designed to bring widespread awareness about the many positive benefits of Fine Art by showcasing a variety of interpretations, subject matter, styles and media that evoke the nature of healing in its many forms.
The jurors made their selections based on how well the artists express the healing process through their art, on creative originality, and technical merit.
