Congratulations to the many amazing artists who recently won different categories in the American Art Awards contest.  This contest is juried by 25 Art Gallery owners from around the United States.  It even includes a very timely category of Teen Bullying for teenage artists.  Some of these artists will amaze you.  My favorite is the second place winner in the Human Figure/Acrylic Category  “MARKET AND POWELL, SAN FRANCISCO” 24 X 48″ Acrylic on canvas by Dan Simoneau, featured above.  Maybe it is part nostalgia for me, having lived in San Francisco for 5 years and still one of my favorite cities.
