The awards for the 13th Annual National 2D Competition are Best of Show, with a $1000 prize, First Place, $750 prize, Second Place, $500 prize, and two Honorable Mention awards at $50 each. The Show's Juror is Paula Holtzclaw.
“North Carolina artist Paula Holtzclaw has gained a national reputation for her ability to capture the drama of nature on canvas. She is most widely known for her landscapes where her fascination with light and atmosphere is most evident. Her still life painting demonstrates a love of the old master’s works.
As a Native Carolinian, she gains much of her inspiration along the coastline, vast marshlands, and southern landscape. Holtzclaw’s paintings have been included in international, national, and museum exhibitions,” according to the website, www.paulaholtzclawfineart.com.
Pandora Autry, Board President, Cape Fear Studios, shares about the exhibit, “We have received 85 entries for the show this year which will be narrowed down to 40 entries to be entered into the competition. The media for this show are all 2D paintings, drawing media, hand-pulled prints and collages.”
“Two-dimensional art is a popular and versatile form of expression. Most drawings are two-dimensional if the artist is using traditional methods. Typically, 2D art drawings are made using paper, chalk, charcoal, pencils or colored inks. A variety of materials including oil paints, acrylics, watercolors and pastels can be used for these paintings.
"Two-dimensional platforms are drawing, painting, prints, and photographs. Sculptures are not within the two-dimensional group. Sculpture is a three-dimensional art form. A two-dimensional piece of artwork can capture a moment in time, create a narrative, and express emotion,” according to Eden Gallery, Art Blog, SN
“This is always a wonderful exhibit to view entries from all over the country,” shares Autry.
