More than 200 hundred artists from around the world submitted 600 images to the Society of Canadian Artists, 2018 International Open Juried Exhibition. The maximum number any artist can individually submit is three pieces and to have even one of your paintings selected for exhibition is significant recognition.
To have all three selected (and by a jury by the way), is huge. Rising Houston art star Karen Landrigan did just that. All three of her paintings were selected by the Society of Canadian Artists and her work will be included in the SCA’s highly respected online gallery.
“I am extremely grateful,” Landrigan said, “this kind of recognition validates my efforts and encourages me to continue with my art. I am truly invigorated.”
Landrigan’s online exposure has grown exponentially since she began showing her art. Born in Newfoundland Canada and based in Houston for the last fifteen years, Landrigan, who became a full time artist only three years ago, is known for her powerful and emotional acrylic paintings.
Landrigan is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists and a signature member of the International Society of Acrylic Painters. She has proven to be an accomplished fine art painter who has been honored with numerous prestigious awards and accolades over her short career. There will surely be more to come and art lovers, especially those who search for emerging talent, take note. Karen Landrigan is the real thing. This is an artist with high level potential-tons of it.
Landrigan’s paintings titled “ Flying”, “Seeking”, and “Persevering” from her series I Have Something to Say…, will be featured online on the Society of Canadian Artists website from March 15 to July 15, 2018. - shop.societyofcanadianartists.com
