|Fellow artists! You don’t want to miss this opportunity. Did you know that The Hunting Art Prize is open to any Texas artist 18+ and offers a $50,000 cash prize for one fortunate artist? It is absolutely free to enter, so why not? Last year there were about 1500 entries, and 109 artists were selected as finalists and invited to show their work in a gala in Houston. Several of the finalists sold their work at the gala, while others were approached by galleries or made other connections with artists and art dealers.|
The call for entries for the 33rd annual Hunting Art Prize in which participants vie for a $50,000 award has now been issued to artists throughout Texas. The competition, which is sponsored by the international oil services company Hunting PLC, is considered historically the most generous annual award in North America for painting and drawing.
