In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, The National Resources Defense Council announced the eleven finalists for our first-ever Environmental Art Prize.NRDC: The NRDC Environmental Art Prize
To enter, artists were required to submit images of six environmentally related paintings, drawings, prints, or mixed media pieces via Flickr by April 6, 2010. I entered six art works based on water protection and conservation.
The winner, as chosen by their jury: Saundra McPherson (http://www.sumcpherson.com/). along with finalists Bridget Grady, Janet Culbertson, Ted Hayward, Cole Gerst, Elsie Hill, and Nick Savides — will be exhibiting their work at the Nabi Gallery (http://www.nabigallery.com) in New York City starting on June 10th, 2010.
Even though I was among the four whose work will not go on to New York City, I was pleased to be among the top eleven. I was delighted to be in the company of Janet Culbertson, a former colleague. I was one of the six invitational exhibitors in: “Listen to the Earth” at Hamilton College in Clinton NY ( 1994) which was curated by Janet.
