We just wrapped up our latest art show at Life in The West Gallery. The Artist’s Favorite Special Event was held on Feb 17-19, 2023, and was an amazing success! This was an overwhelmingly creative art show, as all the artworks were selected by the individual artists as their favorites. There were 229 artworks on display by 84 artists from 19 states. A variety of styles, mediums, and subject matters were on display, enjoyed by the many guests who attended the event.
Down the Mountain, a beautiful painting by Sarah Dean (shown above) was the People’s Choice winner. There were many other beautiful artworks displayed and the one comment we heard repeatedly was, “There are so many favorites, how do I only pick three?” What we found was that the attendees really enjoyed looking at, studying, and analyzing the artworks, going back and forth, and reviewing their choices before marking their ballots.
Following are pictures of other artworks that were the top nominations as the People’s Choice. Each show attendee received a ballot to pick three of their favorite artworks. After all the choices were counted, the overall vote-getter was the winner. There were many ties for a favorite artwork, which was reflective of the high quality of art on display.
