“Next to excellence is the appreciation of it.”
– William Makepeace Thackeray.
NOAPS congratulates forty five artist members juried into the Salon International 2013!
The word Excellence is defined through these paintings. Please join us in the appreciation of these outstanding works of art.
This is the 12thannual Salon International with the main“goal to
recognize, exhibit, encourage, and promote artistic excellence worldwide”. The awards total more than $35,000 with the Best of Show receiving $8000 plus and article in American Art Collector.
One of the most prestigious exhibitions in the United States, The Salon International 2013, will
take place at the beautiful Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art in San Antonio, Texas from April 13 until May 3, 2013.
As expressed by various NOAPS artists, it is an honor to be part of this exhibition that includes paintings from 44 states,
Washington, D.C., and 10 countries. The paintings in oil and acrylic stand for currently active artists of representational art worldwide. Eleven of the 45 artists are NOAPS Signature Artist Members. As a matter of fact, the cover page of the American Art Collector Magazine for April 2013 displays Grandpa’s Boat by NOAPS SignatureMember Jian Wu. Jian was inspired by “this old boat docked at the corner of a busy fishing market” and he “imagined the story hidden in the boat
and the storms it had overcome.” On page 141 of the same magazine, Monopoly by Signature Member K. Henderson depicts “a nostalgic game board found in a thrift store.”
While most of the paintings are in oil, three works by NOAPS Members are exquisite art done in acrylics. Check the beautiful details
in Lion Dancers by Karen Yee, a 14X18 acrylic painting. The oils are all superb and it is difficult to choose one over the other. It will be a tough job for the 2013 Exhibit Judge, Max Ginsburg.
All the art work from all 45 NOAPS artists is outstanding; just take a
look at Concerto of Petunias by Scott Royston sold even before the grand opening of the show. And, many of the artists have more than one painting in the exhibition. Paula Holtzclaw has four art pieces.
Due to space constraints we are unable to show all the paintings but we equally congratulate all NOAPS Members juried into the
Salon International 2013: Congratulations!
