Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA, June 30, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Mountainsong Galleries Artist William A. Schneider was awarded “Best in Show” at the 15th Annual International Juried Exhibition “For Pastels Only” for “Barn Cat”. The exhibition ran from May 17 until the closing ceremony on June 14 at the Saco Museum in Saco, ME. The juror of awards was noted Pastelist Elizabeth Mowery.
“It’s unusual for a small piece to receive a top award,” commented William. “I felt honored. A pretty girl petting one of the cats that keep her horse barn free of rodents, what fun to paint!”
This 9x12 painting previously received the top award in another national juried show, It’s Pastel, held in New Hampshire.
Schneider has more than 20 pieces currently on display at Mountainsong Galleries. He searches and collects many of the items he uses for his paintings and knows the history of them too.
