Chairman’s Choice Award – Teresa Elliott – “Javalina Clay”
22 x 36 inches – Oil on Aluminum

Teresa Elliott is an American contemporary painter living and working in her desert studio eighty miles north of the Mexican border in far west Texas. The painting, Javalina Clay reflects the primitive nature of this harsh landscape and the seductive qualities of the slick bentonite clay produced after intense rain showers. When the human form merges with pools of silken clay, ancient memories are stirred and timeless narratives replace all traces of modern existence. These are the Badlands of Texas.

Teressa Elliot has won many awards and honors, including Honorable Mention in Figurative, Art Renewal Center’s International Salon, Chairman’s Choice, Art Renewal Center’s International Salon, ACOPAL Grand prize winner, America China Oil Painting Artists League Competition, Collector’s Choice, 2012 American Art Invitational, Saks Galleries, Denver, CO, and People’s Choice 2014, 2013, 2012, 2010, 2009, Coors Western Art Exhibit. Elliot has also been included in several publications including American Art Collector, Western Art Collector, Southwest Art, Artists Magazine, Cowboys and Indians, Poets & Artists, and Professional Artist’s Magazine.
