New Works Added to MEAM Exhibit

September 4, 2015

Texas of the South Pacific
by Christian Hemme
Three new works have been added to the list of paintings to be exhibited in the traveling exhibition for the 2014/2015 ARC Salon. Today we are adding the First Place Landscape Winner, Christian Hemme’s painting of Texas of the South Pacific, as well as two finalist works. The first is by Elena Green titled The Best Part of the Meat. Elena won an honorable mention in the 2014/2015 ARC Salon with a different work, as well as a Purchase Award and Third Place Drawing in the 2013/2014 ARC Salon. We are also adding Finding The Gold, by ARC Living Master™, David Bowers.
"As an artist working on the Florida Gulf Coast, I am especially drawn to the maritime landscapes inherent to this area: coastal scenes of the bays, inlets, and beaches, as well as the working boats that come into the Port of Pensacola and nearby marinas. The behemoths of the petroleum industry are rather unique subjects; collectors have responded positively to their massive, complex aesthetic. This particular vessel, the Texas, has been in Pensacola several times over the past year for maintenance. The ship is a DP Saturation Diving Vessel that hails from Port Vila, in the South Pacific island of Vanuatu. The painting was inspired by the wonderful color harmony and atmosphere of the scene, coupled with the usual amazing multiplicity of textures and geometric shapes present in industrial maritime subject matter."

We have received a number of requests from artists who have been asked to participate in the live exhibition if we will provide an opportunity for them to sell their paintings. Because of this we have decided to do so. Many of the works on exhibit are also available for sale, a full list of these works can be found at the below link.
