I’m so very pleased that “Leader of the Pack” has been juried into the Society of Animal Artists’ 52nd Annual Art and the Animal Exhibition. There were 346 submissions so I am very honored to be one of the artists selected to participate. The exhibition will premiere at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum in Oradell NJ, September 1 – December 31, 2012. Select pieces from the exhibition will then go on a year-long nationwide tour.
The Society of Animal Artists is an association of animal and wildlife painters and sculptors. Founded in 1960, the Society is devoted to promoting excellence in the portrayal of the creatures sharing our planet, and to the education of the public through its informative art seminars, lectures and teaching demonstrations. Some of the finest animal artists from the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, Japan, and Australia are represented in the Society’s membership. Over the past 40 years the work created by these artists has established new standards of artistic excellence and respect, helping animal and wildlife art to achieve a place of honor in the field of fine art.
