The ACOPAL takes great pleasure in announcing the winners and finalists in our first open competition. The competition was received with an overwhelming response and selecting the winners was no easy task. The Jury of Awards included Eric Rhoades, Paul McCormack and Patricia Watwood. The 3 Grand Prize Winners will be included in the upcoming ACOPAL’s Exhibition of Contemporary American Realism at the National Arts Club in New York on May 17th through May 26th with the added opportunity of having their work selected for the exhibit at the World Art Museum in Beijing in 2012.
