ARTISTS OF THE MONTH
"Wow! Thank you so much for the honour!
I am absolutely delighted!
I love Gallery Ring's curator comments which are so true to my feeling of my little rocky beach near my home studio where I walk, paint and swim.
An armful of thanks."

SOLO SAPPHIRE AWARD
"I am honored to start my year by being included in the Colourful show and receiving special recognition with a Juror’s Choice Award! Those awards are a special treat because it makes me feel like my work engendered a response and connection in the viewers that was personally meaningful. I like to think that art actually materializes fully somewhere in the space between viewer and art… so this type of accolade means a good deal. Thank you!"
-- DIANE LIGUORI
JUROR'S CHOICE AWARD
"Dear Gallery Ring Team - it is 6.45 in the morning in Austria and first thing I did (after brewing some good, strong tea) was refreshing your site to see if the new show was already up. Imagine the shock, disbelief and gratitude, when I found my picture as Best in Show!!! To tell you the truth, this was a goal I so longed to achieve, it is definitely a milestone in my artistic life. Thank you SO MUCH!!!"
-- SUSANNE WEBER
BEST IN SHOW
"I am over the moon and honoured with the Best in Show and Crystal Award! Thanks so so much!! I don’t think you realise how much the comments meant to me – when I drew that bull that was exactly what struck me – this gorgeous animal and the raw contrast of the rope through his nose. I had tears in my eyes because the comments made me feel like I achieved conveying exactly that feeling – it meant the world to me!"
-- HENRIETTE VAN STADEN

I will take this opportunity to also let you know how much I enjoy the wonderful narratives you include with the awards each month. They are written with insight and perspective that helps viewers to see into the heart of the artist and artists to see into the perspective of viewers. What a gift for all guests who visit your site and all artists who contribute their work."
