consortium winners announced

The Miami winners include John Bailly, Tim Curtis, Jacin Giordano (more here), Julie L. Kahn, and Chad Tingle. I don't know Tingle's work, but I do know the others, and they're solid. Jacin, as I have said before, is going to be famous one day. Julie and John have been working their rear ends off for years down here with inadequate recognition. And I'm relieved to know that the fellowship is not geared against painters at the national-level selection round. Congrats, people.

Giordano is a serious and original painter and he may very well get famous. He has a way to go before his paintings get really good. Bailly seems deserving; we have discussed him here before. Tim Curtis is a big-league sculptor who used to teach at UM. I find Kahn boring, but she does her specialty well, I suppose. Never heard of Chad Tingle. Looks like a better group than usual.

Giodano's works looks lively and interesting., though i haven't seen it in person. I will if there is a consortium winners exhibit.

Congratulations to all but especially to John Bailly. He is also a recent winner of the Florida Visual Arts Fellowship Grant. Finally, people are recognizing his mind-blowing work.


Right Wing?

Hey congrats to all the winners sincerely, but is any body just a little concerned that this is funded through government(taxes) moneys? Why do grants and competitions like these exist? Shouldn't competions like these be up to the people and not the government? Still I am very happy for those that won, its just the little evil republican in me that's popping up. Thanks

I thought that some younger artists (from Snitzer) would of won, what's with all of these oldies ?

Jacin's plenty young.

Jacin is one of the best artists in Miami.

Judging from the photos on his website, I'd say Tim Curtis looks more twig-league than big-league.

yeah, Marc. He can be a stick in the mud sometimes.
