Congratulations to the 30 winners of our annual art competition.
Our 28th Annual Art Competition attracted more than 7,000 accomplished entries. What a fretful pleasure to have to choose among such beautiful works! Given the rigorous craftsmanship of the majority of entries, judging was, even more than it usually is, a subjective endeavor. We thank Dawn Emerson, Nava Grunfeld, Robert Liberace, Richard McKinley and Jonathan Talbot for making informed choices and for honoring work that took risks. We applaud the 30 winners and the 310 finalists. At the same time, we commend all who entered our contest, for you took the professional step of putting your work forward. It’s a truism, but true: What matters is the work itself. I’m sure you hope, as Corot did, that there will be “painting in heaven.” Congratulations to those who won, to those who almost won, to those who tried, and finally to all of you for whom art is as necessary as air. —Maureen Bloomfield
