Congratulations to our own Janelle Di Lizio for her Purchase Award in the 2013 Art Renewal Center Salon Competition. We thought it was a big deal when she won Best in Show in two local juried shows. This is a REALLY REALLY BIG DEAL.
The Art Renewal Center has created the largest on-line Museum on the internet and has held this prestigious competition for nine years. This year, there were 2000 entries by 850 artists. The finalists in several categories represented the top 30% of all the works submitted.
Here is a link to a list of the winners: http://bit.ly/13LuyFD
Before coming to The Art Shop, Janelle studied art at Moore College of Art & Design and business at Pierce College in Philadelphia. She continues to take classes and workshops throughout the area when time permits. Her favorite medium is charcoal and she loves figurative work, especially portraiture. The subject of her award-winning drawing is her niece.
If you visit The Art Shop, be sure to give Janelle an attagirl.
