My grapevine tells me the Fleisher Challenge winners have been told their good fortune, but all I have is three names so far–all friends of Artblog. As soon as I can reach someone at Fleisher and get the full list, I’ll post it.

Here’s who so far (9 to go):

sculptor Shelley Spector
photographer Judy Gelles
digitally altered photographic artist Richard Ryan

All three totally deserving artists–and note the age trend here!!! Fleisher has been improving its track record of breaking through the age barrier. Very exciting.

Congratulations to you (to music, of course), and I trust we’ll have more names coming.

Established in 1978, the Challenge Exhibition Series exhibits the work of 12 regional artists chosen from more than 300 entries.
