CUTE! Animal art at its best. Lana Burnett is Best in Show




Wednesday, 1 November 2023

Our first ever CUTE exhibition is here! It focuses on the softer side of animal and wildlife art, providing a happy and desirable serotonin explosion.

This exhibition is built to lift your spirits. It is full of beautiful art that makes you go, "Aww!" We are proud to present this exhibition that will hopefully make you feel renewed and happy.

Congratulations to each artist whose work was accepted into Wild Heart Gallery's "CUTE" international juried art exhibition!

It is the goal of Wild Heart Gallery to support and promote animal and wildlife artwork in a wide range of genres and styles.

Artwork for this exhibition was selected by jury based on theme, originality, skill, and quality of work. Jurors were Sarah Soward, Elyssa Helfman, Sharon Eisley, and Ashli Kingfisher.

Best in Show

Look What I Can Do! by Lana Burnett
9x12 inches, Pastels on toned Pastelmat paper

This piece made more than one of jurors exclaim, "Awww!" out loud. On top of the over-the-top cuteness factor, the drawing is expertly crafted with detail that is energetic and yet soft, like the subject. It feels like we can know this dog by the way the fur is rendered, and it feels like those soul-filled eyes know us too.

Artist ( Description ): 

From the artist:  I've been painting quality watercolor portraits and landscapes for 30 years. I obtained my early professional training at the University of South Florida and continued my training at numerous workshops with international watercolor artists Tom Lynch and Tom Jones, among others. In portraits I strive to obtain a level of realism which captures the personality of the individual. I'm recently semi-retired and am pleased to add pastels to my offers, and look forward to totally devoting myself to my passion of painting.

Venue ( Address ):

Wild Heart Gallery , Cathedral City
