Winner of “All Colors of the World” Challenge

So excited to have my piece “we build with what we can” named this month among the twenty winners of the international mobile art challenge “All Colors of the World.” Our work will be part of the “All Colors of the World” exhibition in Cagliari, Italy at the MEM Mediateca del Mediterraneo. Because of Covid-19, the exhibition no longer has a definite date, but the organizers are still expecting to host it this year. It is truly an honor to be part of this exhibition filled with some of the best mobile art from around the world! Special thanks to judges Giulia Baita, Clint Cline, Eliza Badoiu, Manuela Matos Monteiro, and Gianluca Ricoveri.

October Fine Art America Contest Wins and My First Solo Show!

I had two third place contest wins at Fine Art America in October!

Melissa D Johnston-To Touch the Moon blog post

“To Touch the Moon” won third place in the contest “Enchanted.”

Muse

“Muse” won again (!), this time a third place win in “Best Digital Art on FAA.”

But the best news is that both of these images will be part of my first solo show called “Story,” which opens Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at Old Town Public House in Cornelius, NC. The show will run for three months, and the reception will be full of “story” in both image and word form. More details coming soon!!

So excited to win First Prize in the Office Art Decor Sepia Art Content at Fine Art America Sunday evening! The Office Art Decor group puts together galleries of the best artwork available on Fine Art America for professional spaces. This particular contest was focused on sepia tones only. There were 277 images in the competition. The prize is a coveted space on their homepage (they choose 5 images/week and the winner of the contest gets a space automatically). So–I’m stoked! Pictured above is a screen shot of their page for this week with my image, “Muse.”
