Bill Wins "Artist of the Year" Competition
The competition was judged by UTSA art professor emeritus, Charles Field. Field has also been on the faculties of the University of New Mexico, the University of Texas at Austin, Western Illinois University and the American Institute for Foreign Study in London. He is a Fellow of the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ireland and has had 29 solo exhibitions and over 100 group exhibitions in the United States and abroad. His work is represented in many public collections including the McNay Art Museum, the SBC Center, USAA, McGraw-Hill in New York, Austin Museum of Art, Texas Instruments, Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P., Texaco, Kronkosky Foundation, SBC Corporation and UTSA.
In praising Bill's work at the competition, Field stated that:
"Bill has a real sense of the visual to capture the essential facts of form in an exciting way."
After the reception, Bill reflected that "It is really a wonder to me to be able to see, and appreciate, the incredible beauty that surrounds us. And to have the wonderful opportunity of passing some of that beauty on to others is an unmerited gift from God."
The exhibit also consists of four works from each of the other nine 2006 "Artists of the Month" at the New Braunfels Art League's "Downtown Gallery" at 239 West San Antonio Street (right across the street from historic "Henne's Hardware"). The exhibit will run through January 30th and encompasses many media, including photography, acrylics, oils, watercolor, pastel, pencil and others. If you would like to meet Bill and talk with him, he will be in the gallery all day Saturday, the 27th. For more information, you can call the Art League at (830) 629-8022.
