The 28th Chelsea International Fine Art Competition – Begins on February 12, 2013!

Here’s what several of the 2012 selected competition artists raved about:

As a New Yorker I was impressed by the truly international nature of the show, and by the quality of the art.” ~ Meredith Rose

"To see my work displayed on the walls of your gallery was validating on so many levels. I have been doing art for more than 40 years and I couldn't help but feel a strong sense of satisfaction, joy, accomplishment, and personal honor. Thank you for that opportunity… Winning the competition has fueled my passion and inspired me to work harder. It has also provided me with distinction as a professional fine artist." ~ Doug DePice

THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES to you all. The kindness and warm hellos, the great care in handling my delicate boxes and setting up all the artworks for the show was truly done with love and lots of professional care. I'm looking forward to entering again in a competition and highly recommend other artists to do the same.” ~ Giovanni Gelardi
