Art Kudos is an annual international juried competition that serves to recognize and honor excellence in the visual arts. Artists who are selected as finalists benefit from world-wide exposure in a year-long online exhibition (www.artkudos.com) and have the opportunity to win cash awards for their exemplary work.
A total of $4,400 will be awarded as follows: Best of Show - $1,200; Second Place - $900; Third Place - $750; Founder's Award of Distinction - $500; (3) Merit Awards - $250 each; (3) Honorable Mentions - $100 each.
Each year a distinguished art professional is chosen to serve as the awards judge and to ensure a diverse range of perspectives and expertise. We are very pleased to have Holly Koons McCullough serving as juror of awards for the 2011 exhibition. Holly Koons McCullough is the Director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgia. She began her career at the Telfair in 1996, serving as the museum's Curator of Education before assuming leadership of the curatorial department. She spearheaded the publication of the Telfair's first collection catalogue, and has organized exhibitions on subjects ranging from modern silverpoint drawings to contemporary Southeastern art, as well as 19th and early 20th-century American art, including the recent Dutch Utopia exhibition. She holds a B. A. in English and art history from the University of Georgia and a M.A. in art history from the University of Notre Dame.
