The 2012 Mira's List Art Contest Winners!

 April 25, 2012

Well, after much deliberation, the results are finally in for the art contest. First, before I tell you who the judges picked, I want to say that the art submitted was fantastic and that it was a hard decision to make for the judges: Mary Sherman, Director of TransCultural Exchange and Wendy Watson, Curator at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum. So thanks to not only them for helping out with this contest but thanks to all of you who entered! Okay....on to the winners: KAROL SLOWIK for first place and LILY MORRIS for on....

First, a big congratulations to Karol Slowik for winning first place! Karol is from Poland but now lives in New York and you will hear more about Karol's work in the future when we do a special interview later this spring. Karol won a $500 prize and will soon be featured on this blog until the next contest. Here are some of Karol's work (scroll down to see Lily's work too).

Lily Morris, from Massachusetts, won second place. She received a $100 prize. Below are some of her paintings. She is only three years out of college and I think she has quite a bright future before her.

Thanks again everyone for entering and I hope some of you try again for the next contest down the road. Cheers! Mira

Welcome to Mira's List

This blog provides information on upcoming grants, fellowships and residencies for artists, writers, composers, and media artists. It is for serious professionals only, from emerging to mid-career to established. I also publish information for graduate students from time to time. However, I do not publish information on exhibition or publishing opportunities, nor do I advertise artist retreats and workshops that charge money. At least that is my current policy. For more info on where to exhibit or publish, please see my links section which I try to periodically update. I sift through hundreds of search engines and websites to find opportunities for YOU dear artist. In return, I ask you to pass the information along to those who need it. Also, since this is a free blog, I don't always have the time to weed carefully through everything. If you find a grant or website or residency that is not up-to-date, is dodgy in some way, or is no longer in existence, please let me know! Also, if you stay somewhere at one of the residencies I suggest and have a good experience, I want that feedback too. Please check my FAQs at the top right side bar if you have questions before starting your search. Best wishes and happy hunting!
