Artist Statement from ‘Best in Show’ winner Win Zibeon from Blauvelt, NY: “The more I travel the more I see, the more I read, the more I want to tweak the viewer’s vision of his or her world. We all want to live in a perfect world where the water is perfectly clear. We know it isn’t so. Yet so many paintings still portray an idealized view of the world. While I don’t want to shatter the fantasy, I would like the viewer to come away from my paintings and take a little extra time to see their world a little differently.”

Zibeon will receive a 10-day stay in East End Arts’ Artist Residence, plus $1,000 cash, and inclusion in a group show at the prestigious Peter Marcelle Gallery in Bridgehampton, NY. Additional awards were granted to three outstanding works as well as a number of honorable mentions, including: First Place, to Michael McLaughlin from New York, NY; Second Place, to Cynda Valle from Willits, CA; and Third Place, to Mary Agnes Williams from Philadelphia, PA. For images of their work and more information, visit: http://www.eastendarts.org/gallery/national-show-2013.html.
