BANDON — Art by the Sea Gallery and Studio in Old Town Bandon has tallied all of the votes and has announced the winner of the People’s Choice Award for the Miniature and Small Works 2013 Show.
Allen A. (Tony) Adams was overwhelmingly chosen as the favorite and will be featured with an exhibition of his paintings at Art by the Sea Gallery during March and April 2014.
“His beautiful acrylic paintings of the baby chimpanzee, cattle and blue jay are what garnered him the majority of the votes,” said Susan Lehman of Art by the Sea Gallery.
Adams, who studied at Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles and worked as a graphic designer, uses considerable skill as a realist to produce paintings of wildlife, landscape and portraiture. His artwork has been displayed frequently throughout the area and he had a one-person show at the Coos Art Museum in 2010.
“Art by the Sea wishes to thank all of the artists who participated in the Miniature and Small Works Show and all of the visitors to the gallery who voted for their favorite artist,” Lehman said.
The public is invited to stop by Art by the Sea Gallery and Studio to see the new show.
Summer hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.daily.
