California Memory by Clifford T. Bailey

California Memory by Clifford T. Bailey

Everyone loves a pat on the back for a great effort. In the art world, awards are meaningful not only to the recipient but to collectors too. Collectors especially like to keep “score” of the accomplishments by their favorite artists.  It adds to the provenance and value for artwork.

Among the 30-some artists at Hunter-Wolff Gallery there are hundreds of awards.  Some of our more experienced artists have received dozens and dozens over the course of their career.  Clifford T. Bailey, for example, continues to receive awards even after nearly 40 years of a proven track record. One might think, “does it really matter at this stage?”  Absolutely.  Validation is always important and shows different generations value his work and the measurement for excellence is as important today as it was yesterday.

Clifford just received the welcomed news from the Miniature Art Society of Florida that all his entries for the upcoming 37th Annual International Miniature Art Show were accepted and that he won First Place in the Landscape category.  The show will be held January 15 – February 5 2012. Because this particular show is one of the biggest and best miniature shows in the country, competition comes from all over the world.

Congratulations Clifford!  Your work is tops in my book too.
