Best in Show (Photography & Digital) – Barbara Mierau-Klein – “AUTUMN IN ALASKA” – digital photo collage

Barbara Mierau-Klein is a digital artist recognized for her multi-layered, imaginative and colorful fine art images. A native of Germany, Barbara lives in the Washington, D.C. area but often travels the world as a passionate landscape and nature photographer since her teenage years.

Much of Barbara’s work is highly stylized and focuses on beautiful moments and evocative moods across a wide range of subjects. The inspiration for her images comes from many sources, often her own nature photography, but also books, song lyrics, movies, and works of other artists, old masters as well as contemporary digital artists. Barbara’s work has been exhibited in a number of galleries in the US and Europe and has received numerous awards. Her images also appear regularly in international art magazines. Barbara is represented locally by Waverly Street Gallery in Bethesda, MD.

Best in Show (3-Dimensional) – Sara Ussher – “IN THE SUMMER EVENING LIGHT” – acrylic paint on a natural stone

My interest is stones and stone painting, in that sense that I want to create a sculptural dimension by painting the stone just to highlight the stone itself and the qualities of that stone. I find it very fascinating and challenging to go for a realistic creation by paying attention to and at the same time make use of the form, the size, the consistency and the color shift of that particular stone.

The creative process thus starts with the stone itself and in this way the material is guiding me. By interpreting the “spirit” of the stone I am able to express myself and create meanings. I use crude natural stones – not processing them in any way – that I find in the surroundings. The “dull” stones out there, I feel, have a lot to offer.
