BEST IN SHOW & HONORABLE MENTION AWARDS
Parklane Gallery is an artist-owned gallery located in the art center of downtown Kirkland in Washington State. Out of 184 galleries in and around Seattle, it has been rated as one of the top 5 galleries in the area. Its member artists tirelessly work to bring together the finest exhibitions each month, including the annual miniature art show. This juried event showcases artists from around the world and is one of the gallery’s most popular events.
It's rare for an artist to take two awards at this show, but it's always a difficult decision for our judges to only limit Linda Rossin's work to just one award. Congratulations to her for winning BEST OF SHOW for "She" a dignified and stately lioness, and also an Honorable Mention for "A Rose for a Rose" a delicately spotlit cluster of rose blooms.
Here's what our judge, Valerie Collymore, had this to say about this striking lioness miniature: “The exacting and painstaking detail in the Best of Show work is of a superior nature and withstands close examination with a magnifying glass with ease. The title of the piece clues the viewer in to the emotional intent of the artist to show the majesty, pride, and beauty of this lioness, celebrating her female status.”
