Art Kudos is an annual international juried competition that serves to recognize and honor excellence in the visual arts. Artists who are selected as finalists benefit from world-wide exposure in a year-long online exhibition (www.artkudos.com) and have the opportunity to win cash awards for their exemplary work.
A total of $4,500 will be awarded: Best of Show – $1,400; Second Place – $1100; Third Place – $750; Founder’s Award of Distinction – $500; (3) Merit Awards – $250 each.
Each year a distinguished art professional is chosen to serve as juror of awards and to ensure a diverse range of perspectives and expertise. We are very pleased to have Mitchell Albala serving as juror of awards for the 2010 exhibition. Mitchell Albala teaches landscape painting at the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle. A respected and dedicated teaching artist for more than 20 years, he is best known for his atmospheric and semi abstract landscapes of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. He has lectured on Impressionism at the Seattle Art Museum and written about landscape painting for American Artist Magazine. He is also the author of Landscape Painting: Essential Concepts and Techniques for Plein Air and Studio Practice, published by Watson-Guptill in 2009. As a professional artist he exhibits his paintings nationally and is represented by Lisa Harris Gallery in Seattle.
The Art Kudos competition is sponsored by Artshow.com, a company that offers web-based services and resources for artists and arts organizations.
