You’ll love this issue of Southwest Art if:
In the December 2017 issue of Southwest Art we reveal the three winners and 10 honorable mentions of our annual Artistic Excellence competition. Each year we receive thousands of entries from, literally, around the world, through which the editors spend weeks sifting. Through multiple rounds of review, we narrow down the field to 13 winners, and 100 finalists, and in this issue, we present this year’s winners and a sampling of the finalists. Explore the works of artists from right here in the western United States to as far abroad as France and China and in mediums from oil to acrylic, watercolor to pastel, and bronze. We hope you enjoy learning more about these talented artists and exploring their work.
Also in this issue you’ll meet painter Rick McClure, who focuses on interpreting the landscapes of the Southeast employing a less-is-more technique strategy; graphite artist Karmel Timmons, who captures western horse culture and the local wildlife of her Colorado home; Utah artist Jeremy Winborg, who paints contemporary portraits of his Native American friends and family.
