Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 14, 2009
The exceptional art of Lore Eckelberry was selected to be exhibited at the Women Painters West exhibition at Viva Gallery in Sherman Oaks, California. The show ran from March 18th to April 4th. Some of the pieces exhibited at this show can be viewed online in the 'latest works' section of http://www.loreeckelberry.com
The juror for this exhibit was Jim Morphesis, a painter whose work is part of the permanent collections of more than twenty museums. He selected Lore Eckelberry's work as the Marci Baker Memorial Award winner.
The award-winning piece was 'Spider Ed' which is an astonishing painting of a boy painted in red with penetrating eyes looking straight at you. Many viewers were awed by the strength and power of the painting. 'Spider Ed' is truly a striking piece.
Another of Lore Eckelberry's pieces featured at the show is titled 'Black Eyes' and is another great portrait.
The juror of the exhibition, Mr. Morphesis said:"When I entered VIVA Gallery to select the artwork that would comprise the 2009 Women Painters West exhibition, I was confronted by a daunting number of extremely high quality paintings. Through such a variety of painting methods, materials and concepts, I looked for a theme to emerge. Diversity itself was what guided my choices. My intention was to have this exhibition showcase the many wonderful and varried ways in which the artists of Women Painters West use their considerable skills to create works that are both provocative and beautiful, all within that most special realm of art that we call painting."
