ASPEN, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Shelly Hamill is an Aspen based mosaic artist with a studio in Aspen, CO for the last 14 years. Shelly Hamill is teaming up with Robert Wilborn of Aspen Grove Fine Art and the Aspen Sojourner Magazine to launch the inaugural ‘The Keller Prize’ call for art. ‘The Keller Prize’ is named after Shelly’s grandmother, Jane Keller. Jane was a landscape painter and was known for her landscapes of the Texas state flower, the bluebonnet. Jane was very influential in Shelly’s decision to become an artist.

‘The Keller Prize’ offers an online exhibition using their website to showcase all submissions in an online gallery as well as on their Instagram and Facebook pages. More than 250 artists from 30 different states and 6 countries have already submitted. A grand prize winner and 2 runners up will be featured in the winter issue of the award winning Aspen Sojourner Magazine, exposing the winners to an affluent, international and educated audience. The Aspen Sojourner Magazine has an annual circulation of 52,000 and an annual readership of 286,000 with an average household income over $500,000USD. Additionally, the winners will be also announced in a dedicated email sent to the Aspen Sojourner Magazine email list with over 2900 emails. A link will be available to send email readers to the Gallery page of 'The Keller Prize' website where every submitted artist will receive exposure and links back to their own personal artists websites when available.

‘As a fellow artist, I know how hard it is to be successful and to be recognized for your work. I’ve created a Call for Art that attempts to make the process of submitting and exposure as easy as possible for artists worldwide.’ says Shelly. ‘The Keller Prize’ offering an online exhibition using their website to showcase all submissions in an online gallery as well as on their social media pages is unique in the art world as most submissions are never seen by anyone other than the judges. The online exhibition also eliminates the need for artists to spend any additional monies for framing or shipping. Artists can also submit their favorite works, the works do not need to be currently for sale.

The Call for Art opened on June 7 and submissions will be accepted through Sept 30, 2022. Artists working in Painting, Photography, Sculpture, Drawing, Printmaking, Textile Art, Mixed Media, Murals, Digital Art, Watercolor are invited to submit. Submitted works and images of submitted woks must be conducive to print and online media.
