SD Art Prize at Art San Diego 2016

By Patricia Frischer

For Art San Diego Contemporary Art Show
 this year (Nov 3-6) SDVAN is sponsoring INTO THE LIGHT: San Diego Art Prize, curated by the San Diego Mesa Collage Museum Studies Program. The most special section of the booth will focus on the outstanding works of the two emerging 2016 SD Art Prize winners William Feeney  and Shinpei Takeda. The collaboration between these organizations is rooted in our mutual interests to promote artists, exhibit their works, and network with the San Diego community. 
This booth will also feature artwork by San Diego Art Institute members who have been past years nominees for the San Diego Art Prize.
Claudia Cano, Andrea Chung, Beliz Iristay, Margaret Noble, Sasha Koozel Reibstein, Bhavna Mehta, PANCA, Lee Puffer, Aren Skalman, Anna Stump and Joe Yorty. It will highlight artists that have made the transition from their studios to solid representation in the San Diego art scene. There will be an exciting range of affordable work geared to young art collectors that want to support local artists. 

Below you will see work from the SD Art Prize exhibition, followed by work from each of the booths at the fair that represented San Diego artists. And finally, you will see a few works I choosen from this international fair.

Shinpei Takeda's wonderful woven tapestry with a reproduction of the sounds waves of a discussion held with a local emigrant

Shinpie Takeda's twelve layers of convicts overlaid with a view of the prison. Very subtle and sensitive, these pieces changes every time you look at it.
