You'll love this issue of Southwest Art if:
If you're like us, then you've been waiting for the December 2015 issue of Southwest Art in which we announce the winners of our annual Artistic Excellence art competition. A perennial favorite, the contest - open to artists of all kinds, all over the world - garners thousands of entries, which Southwest Art editors carefully consider in round after round of judging. In this issue we bring you the first-, second-, and third-place winners; 10 honorable mentions; and a sampling of the 100 artworks that made it to our final round of judging. Also in the issue, you'll meet artists John Austin Hanna and William A. Suys Jr. Hanna, who has been "easel painting" (a.k.a. fine-art painting) in Fredericksburg, TX, for the past 37 years, is inspired by land and structures affected or shaped by humans. Wisconsin artist Suys considers each painting to be a portrait, whether his subject is human, animal, or inanimate, and he seeks out the subtle differences in each subject in order to best represent it. Discover the work of both artists in the December issue.
Also in this issue, we take a look at holiday shows around the West. This and much more in the December issue of Southwest Art!
