Cathy selected for semifinalist round of the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition 2013
Cathy, Market Street, Paterson, NJ, 2011
I'm excited to share some wonderful news that the portrait of Cathy from my Paterson series in progress has been selected for the semifinalist round of the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition 2013. The final round of judging takes place at the Smithsonian Museum's National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC on September 13th. The finalists will be included in an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery from March 23, 2013 through February 23, 2014, and the winner will receive an award of $25,000. The public will also have the opportunity to vote from amongst the finalists for the People's Choice Award.
My deepest thanks to the jury for recognizing this portrait and to Cathy for sharing part of herself with me on Market Street in April 2011. A special thanks also to my friend, artist June Glasson, for encouraging me to apply to the competition.
