Climbing the Wall Receives Special Recognition

Climbing the WallRalph's painting Climbing the Wall was awarded special recognition in the Upstream People Gallery 13th Annual All Media Juried Online International Art Exhibition. 
Here's what the juror had to say about Climbing the Wall...

"'RALPH WHITE of Redondo Beach, California makes acrylic painting very active with the richly textured vertical line work with shoes moving diagonally across the plane. Not only is the controlled action painting "Climbing the Wall" dealing with actual movement in the painting process but the imagery of shoes walking, also deals with the idea of movement."'

We are grateful for our continued affiliation with Upstream People Gallery and their commitment to emerging artists and the arts.  Please take a moment to check out the current exhibition and let us know what you think!
