This exhibit has a heavier focus on ceramic work and the portrait.  All 2D and 3D mediums are welcome and works can be abstract, symbolic, realistic, representational, minimalist, or contemporary. 

   Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.” 
― Oscar Wilde

“The medium is the message,” philosopher, Marshall McLuhan

​Whether the term, MUGSHOT means strictly the face to you, or it represents the idea of an actual vessel or mug, or you see it as the physicality of the medium, or the object you employ…we want to discover how this provocative theme describes your vision.

Amy Ringholz is contemporary wildlife painter from Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  

She received several art awards and scholarships in college that gave her the confidence to pursue her dream of being a full time artist.  These accolades changed everything for her.  She not only felt the honor of being recognized, but the courage to trust herself and pursue her art.

In order to return this gift, Amy started The Ringholz Art Supply Awards in 2009 to encourage visual artists of all ages to go after their own dreams in art.  $1000 awards will be distributed yearly to artists that through this application, highlight their hard work ethic, talent and heart.  Amy firmly believes that any dream is attainable if you have these three qualities.  

Applicants will be encouraged to give forward and give back using their gift.  The Ringholz Art Supply Awards seeks artistic talent, but also is looking at the applicant's character and need.
