Shane Wolf

In the last week of July, Angel Academy of Art alumnus Shane Wolf won the $5000 top prize in the first ever figure-painting competition given at the Academy of Realist Art, Boston. As well as Shane, from Angel’s, the ten competitors included instructors and students from Juliette Aristides’s academy in Seattle, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, and a San Francisco academy.

The painting is on show at the Egeli Gallery in Provincetown.

Bravo, Shane!!!

Vicki Sullivan

Angel Academy’s recent student Vicki Sullivan’s painting Coming up Roses, a portrait of Actor Kerry Armstrong, has been selected for the Australian Black Swan Portrait prize.

Earlier this summer, Vicki gave a 5-day workshop on the Meldrum [tonalist] Method in Tuscany, outside Montalcino. She hopes to give it again in 2016.
