THE FUTURE GENERATION
Winners Announced

1st Place-Celia Liberace.jpg

The Portrait Society of America is pleased to announce the winners of our inaugural The Future Generation Competition. This competition was created to acknowledge the work of talented, emerging artists, who are 18 to 25 years old. Early recognition in art competitions can have a great impact on a young artist’s career, as it did for John Singer Sargent, who at the age of twenty-three, won Honorable Mention at the Paris Salon for a portrait he painted of his teacher, Carolus-Duran.
