An online juried show by NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery

Submission deadline, extended to October 1, 2021

 Art is often created through the reimaging of ordinary things.”
                                                                              Michael Atavar

Artists are life’s interpreters, always adjusting to the unexpected. With the past year behind us, life and nature seem more poignant as we begin to celebrate an emergence from the pandemic mindset. Many of us are asking what this last year taught us, and what we want to bring forward with us into the future.

We challenge you to interpret this time, to “reimagine” anything and everything in the space of your art and your imagination!

Selected works will be featured on our website and shared with our extensive social media audience.  First, second and third prize winners will receive generous cash prizes, and will be offered the opportunity to display and sell original work at NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery for the months of September and October, 2021. 
The gallery is located at 85 Main Street in Saranac Lake, New York, just 9 miles from Lake Placid.  Visit us at

Meet our JUROR, Richard Reese
After a long career as a physician in Midland, Texas, Richard Reese retired in 2011 and began “reimagining” himself as a visual artist.  Born in 1952, he began formal art training in 2012.  Oil painting and charcoal drawing are his favorite mediums. Rick attributes his rapid success as an artist to his work ethic.  He tries to paint every day in his studio, where he regularly joins a group of fellow artists.
Rick enjoys still life paintings, landscapes, and plein air but has found most of his success in portraiture. He tries to be fearless in his creative process.  He finds drawing and painting to be an intellectual exercise in trying new ideas. 
Awards have included Midland Art Association “Best in Show” (2013), finalist in Linus Galleries portrait contest in Pasadena, CA (2015), and First Place All Drawing Art at the Kendall Art Gallery, San Angelo, TX (2019).  He has participated in group showings at Linus Gallery and Studio 3600 McDermott Gallery in Midland, Texas.  He is currently represented by FaFa Gallery in Midland, Texas.  
Juror will select first, second and third place winners who will be awarded generous cash prizes.
