The Work of Harry Ahn and Clark Wilcox

Harry Ahn is a new participant in PaintAmerica shows, but he's certainly not new to the art world. The Michigan artist is one of America's most prominent portrait artists. Harry has done dozens of one-man shows, been exhibited internationally, won numerous Best of Shows, and been a prolific commissioned portrait artist for many years. His paintings are known for transforming everyday subjects and settings into something extraordinary. This 24"x30" oil painting, "Let Me Think This Over" ($8,500), captures a common situation, but is painted with a spirit that it makes it something special. It was juried into the 2009 PaintAmerica Top100.

Clark Wilcox was born and raised in Montana, but now resides in Wyoming. With a Top100 and a Mini Top50 painting in the 2009 PaintAmerica Top100, Clark has now had paintings accepted into the last three PaintAmerica competitions. "Paradise Valley" ($1,800) is a 24"x20" oil, in the Top100. His mini painting, "Lady of the Lake Creek" ($450) is a 12"x9" oil. Clark has studied with several prominent artists, and has been accepted into numerous other juried shows including the C.M. Russell Art Auction in Great Falls, and the Yellowstone Art Museum’s annual auction in Billings. With these recent successes, Clark continues to grow as an artist to watch.
