Award of Excellence

Sea Drift Sculptures

Bernie Houston #22  – $1000 Prize

Judge’s Comments:  This work definitely has the wow factor. From the moment you observe the overall collection of visions that only Bernie sees, to start with, to the stunning finished painted sculptures.  You can go on the journey with him with an explanation or just marvel your way thru with awe.  Each piece has a degree of artistry that only one with passion for every detail of expression, shape, color and poetry of motion could execute in a three dimensional form.  His true joy of working in this medium is to be admired as he draws you in with his reason for a particular piece.  Bernie is a very noteworthy and contemporary artist.
