Animals have been a source of inspiration for many artists. From art about rural life and growth, to myths and legends, animals are used in art in many different ways. Art can help us explore our relationship to wildlife and can help us think about how we care for animals and the environment.

For this competition, we looked for not only technique with medium, but how well the artist captured the essence and spirit of the subject.

Each of our themed exhibitions, awards for First, Second and Third Place. The First Place winner for the Fins, Feathers & Fur show is Sandy Moser for her acrylic painting, I’m Looking At You. Sandy’s interpretation of the theme as well as the composition of the owl are outstanding. Her use of the medium is outstanding, and it as if you can feel the fuzz of the feathers. Sandy is also the Featured Artist for the next four weeks.

Taking Second Place is Patricia Gauss for her colored pencil, Roxanne. Patricia’s command of the medium she used to depict an almost aloof lizard are what draw the viewer in. And, Third Place goes to Maggie Steinhilper for her encaustic, Peek A Boo. Maggie’s treatment of the subject are what made her work stand apart. It as if we can look right into the owl’s eyes.

Honorable Mention awards were given as well. Honorable Mention awards go to Alex Ambrose for her colored pencil and ink drawing, Falcon And Hemlock, Gregory Antollino for his photograph, Wise Goat, Telagio Baptista for his watercolor painting, Melinda Bylow for her acrylic and prism-color, Young Sparrow, Nikki Coulombe for her soft pastel, Asian Elephant, Sandra Dalton for her photo, Gorgeous Portrait, Michael Duke for his enhanced photo, Coming In To Land, Theodore Heublein for his watercolor, Water Buffalo, Chloe Hourdequin for her watercolor, Jungle Crawl, Daniel Kabakoff for his watercolor 4 Fish, Dmitry Krebs for his oil, They Love Too, Minnie Lucas for her photo Llama, Deepti Mohile, for her mixed media, Superb Fairy-Wren, Irena Roman for her transparent watercolor, Joan, Silvia Schmidt for her pastel, Longing, Alison Thomas for her digitally manipulated photo, Peeking and Vasu Tolia for Any Challenger.
