J. Mane Gallery is pleased to present its Open Theme International Online Juried Art Exhibition. 

“An artist is typically a being that is filled with so much passion, love, or pain for certain lands, people ideas or images that all they can do with that overflow is bleed it out by creating. And with this type of art, the energy will be shifted from the depths of them, and in to the depths of the audience to be felt. It is a dance. A transference. An intimacy. It is to touch and awaken another human a place they hadn’t known was aching, or sleeping. Both are opened. Both are nourished. Both are transformed.”~Victoria Erikson

For this competition, artists were encouraged to share their artistic vision and interpretation of any subject.  Over 200 entries varied from realism to surrealism to abstraction. All artists over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best inspired work.

Each of our monthly themed exhibitions, awards for First, Second and Third Place.  The First Place winner for the Open Theme show is Youngsheen Jhe for her oil on canvas, Your Delight. Youngsheen captured her subject beautifully and technique with the medium is what set her work apart. Youngsheen is also the Featured Artist for the duration of the show.

Taking Second Place is Kaitlin Maloy for her digital painting, Extremeties Environment.   And, Third Place goes to Giuliano Giuliani for his mixed media on canvas, Reina Tahiti.  

Eight Honorable Mention awards were given as well. Honorable Mention awards go to Michele Bordeau for her bonded bronze sculpture, Dream 1, Red (Linda) Harrison for her acrylic painting, Me And You, Hildy Maze for her painting, Visual Poem Shades of Yellow, Matt Meyer for his sculpture, Cozy, Roni Murillo for her mixed media, Pucker Up, Lauren Nicole for her digital print, Magenta Bloom, Alison Thomas for her digitally manipulated photograph, Redbud Spring, and Ila Van for Somebody.
