Let’s face it, when one develops a new genre of art and gives it a name, it’s going to take a while before it catches on … often, it may be many years after the artist is long gone. Of course, an artist hopes for at least a little recognition while he is still around.
Exhibitions use judges called “jurors” to evaluate the worthiness of art. The artist is accustomed to his work in Socio-Political Abstractionism being rejected by most jurors, but through perseverance, some works have been admitted into certain exhibitions. The awards have been slow in coming (like none, up to now), but a recent exhibition has honored the artist with awards for not one, not two, but three of his works. That was unexpected.
“How I Remember 2020” Exhibition, Art Show International (Winners Gallery – How I Remember 2020 | Art Show International)
- Rage vs. The Blue Wall (Version 1) – Honorable Mention Award
- Rage vs. The Blue Wall (Version 2) – Honorable Mention Award
- Science … Bah! Humbug! (1970 and 2020 Version) – Finalist Award
I don’t know who made up the award certificate, but the exhibition really was
“How I Remember 2020” and not “How to Remember 2020”.
I don’t want to be too fussy … I’ll take what I can get.
