Our Juror:

WALT DAVIS SWS AWS

http://waltdavisart.com/

Walt Davis, signature member and past president of the Southwestern Watercolor Society, began painting in watercolor over thirty years ago.  He has studied with such notable artists as Faith Helen Foust, Bud Biggs, Doug Walton, Louise Cadillac, Carole Barnes, Frank Webb, Mark Mehaffey, Richard Stephens, and bird artist John P. O’Neil.

Davis has taught watercolor, figure drawing, and plein air sketching at Eastfield Community College, Amarillo College, Panhandle Art Center, San Angelo Museum of Art, and in his studio in Commerce.  He has conducted demonstrations and workshops in Amarillo, Brownsville, Dallas, San Angelo and nine other Texas cities.

His work is carried by the Davis and Blevins Gallery in St. Jo, Texas, and his paintings hang in private collections in Washington State, Montana, Florida, Colorado, New Mexico, and cities throughout Texas.

His painting, Katy-did, Katy-didn’t, won the Margery Soroka Memorial Award in the 2013 American Watercolor Society competition in New York and was included in the Society’s traveling show.  Two other insect portraits won awards in 2014; one in the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies in Phoenix, Arizona, and the other in the Southwestern Watercolor Society show in Dallas.  With the acceptance of the painting Make My Day (see above) in the 2015 annual exhibition of the American Watercolor Society, Davis became a signature member of that prestigious organization.

2015 winner: Paint the Town by Stuart Hausmann

TEXAS PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS:

ENTER ORIGINAL ARTWORK INTO A YEAR ON THE PLAZA ART COMPETITION BY AUG. 25

Winning work displayed on art wall in Dallas Arts District for one year, no entry fees 

DALLAS – Professional artists across Texas are invited to enter A Year on the Plaza Art Competition by Thursday, Aug. 25 at 3:00 p.m. for an exceptional exhibition opportunity for the winning artist.

Presented by The Catholic Foundation, the unique competition is accepting original work, searching for a piece of art to adorn a 28-foot-long by 9-foot-wide public art wall in the Dallas Arts District for one year. Submissions must measure 28 inches by 9 and 2/3 inches, and the winning work will be digitally enlarged to cover the wall. The winning artist receives a $2,500 stipend and honorable mentions receive $250 each.

“A Year on the Plaza Art Competition presents a unique opportunity for talented individuals in Texas to express themselves artistically and showcase their work in the Dallas Arts District,” said J. Matthew Kramer, president and CEO of The Catholic Foundation.

Submissions must be appropriate for the location of the Plaza on the Cathedral grounds but do not require a religious theme. There are no entry fees. The Request for Proposal is available at catholicfoundation.com.

Once the winning piece is selected by a panel of highly respected members of the local arts community, it will be unveiled during a public dedication ceremony in October 2016.

“Words can’t describe how exciting this is. If you are thinking about entering, go for it! What do you have to lose? As long as you enjoy art, then it’s worth it,” said 2015 winning artist Stuart Hausmann.

About The Catholic Foundation Plaza

The Catholic Foundation Plaza is a unique 3,900-square-foot public space located at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe on the corner of Flora and Crockett Streets, directly across from the Meyerson Symphony Hall. The Plaza is in a highly visible location to visitors to the Dallas Arts District and is also one of the sites on the “Public Art Walk Dallas.” Dedicated in 2006, the Plaza was a gift from The Catholic Foundation to the Dallas community to commemorate the Foundation’s 50th anniversary. The wall currently displays last year’s winning piece, “Paint the Town” by Stuart Hausmann. Smaller replicas of all past winning artwork are mounted on the wall as well.

Chartered in 1955, the Foundation was founded by a group of dedicated Catholic laymen with a vision that extended far beyond the charitable needs of the moment.The Foundation has spent decades building a strong community, helping donors fulfill their charitable goals, and preserving the founders’ vision and philanthropic legacy. Over the past 40 years, the Foundation has provided more $100 million in grants to religious, charitable and educational organizations.
