Johnson Street Bridge Painting Wins People's Choice Award!

Throughout the month of February, I displayed two of my original pieces at the LOOK Victoria 2011 Regional Arts Exhibition and Sale, which was organized by the Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria and hosted in the Bay Centre. I am absolutely thrilled to let you know that my Johnson Street Bridge painting received the People's Choice Award for this show!

'Johnson Street Bridge', copyright 2010 Martin Machacek. Winner of the juried Honourable Mention prize and the People's Choice Award at the LOOK Victoria 2011 Regional Arts Exhibition and Sale. Also named 'Best in Show' by Robert Amos of the Times Colonist.

Over 12,000 people attended the show throughout its month-long duration, and each attendee was invited to cast a vote for their favourite piece in the exhibition. With 450+ pieces submitted for the show by over 200 artists throughout the region, I feel extremely honoured to have been selected as the recipient of the People's Choice Award. Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by and view the exhibition, and special thanks extended to those who cast a vote for my painting! Your support of my artwork and my livelihood is much appreciated.
