[ March 3rd - 2013 ] We are happy to announce the winners from our 2nd annual Art contest !¬† Thank you to everyone that took the time to participate, we are humbled by the time put into some of these pieces - thank you for your effort.¬† Congratulations to Alona Buslaeva, Tristan Woody, and¬†Sonja Murphy for being selected as the winners.¬†
We ended up with a tie in our first edition and looks like we might be making that a tradition.¬† Tying for first place and splitting the 1000$ first and 300$ second prizes are Alona and Tristan.¬† Sonja takes home 200$ for third.
Alona's piece is incredibly detailed and the technical skill / shading is really impressive.¬† She has also done a great job of incorporating her chosen theme (Adventure x Art x Music x Ideas) throughout the piece.¬† There are headphones and records shaped like conical shells, adventurous pursuits going on throughout, a mind contemplating the stars while connecting with the rest of what is happening in the drawing... freedom? - overall a beautifully made piece of Art.
[ Alona Buslaeva - Adventure x Art x Music x Ideas - 26" x 36" Pencil on Paper ]
Tristan chose the theme 'Adventure Awaits' and her piece seems to bring us right into it.¬† You can imagine this shared moment to be at the end of a long day of whitewater adventuring, the stories of the day being relayed just as thoughts might be turning to what lies downstream tomorrow.¬† The colour and shading bring a warmth and comfort to the painting and the stars seem to be calling out to us.¬† Another great piece.
[ Tristan Woody - 'Adventure Awaits' - 24" x 36" Oil on Canvas ]
Sonja chose the theme 'One Life to Live' and has created another really nice piece that speaks to it.¬† The classic hour-glass imagery and 'temporary' theme are contrasted by the (relative) permanence of the water cycle, further highlighting our own impermanence.¬† Here are Sonja's own words describing this piece: "'One life to live' is particularly meaningful to me when looked through the lens of time - this is the hour that we have been waiting for. ¬†The reason life is worth living is for this, the current moment, and what we can do within it."¬† We also always like the Tribe logo getting incorporated into Mountains/Rivers and overall like the look and feel of this piece.

Thank you once again to everyone that participated, we look forward to our next one of these Art contests which will be announced later in the year !
