Pastel Painting Bumps the Competition

OH_RHassardM00158.jpgPaintAmerica, a national, non-profit organization to support artists and promote the visual arts, has announced the winners of the 2007 PaintAmerica Top100 National Artists’ Competition. We’re pleased to announce that a pastel painting took one of the top prizes: Ray Hassard’s Bump (pictured here) took the Director’s Choice Award (Mini).

The competition for all painting media was judged by a panel of nationally recognized artists including Paul Jackson and Sallie K. Smith. Winning paintings were chosen from hundreds of entries submitted nationwide. It looks like PaintAmerica hasn’t updated its website yet, but you should be able to see images of the winners and find out when you can see them in person (the winning paintings go on tour) very soon here.
