“Nude 2021” Queen City 15 Gallery Awards of Excellence


Best in Show is awarded to Joseph Besch for “Austin.” 

This award is in fact for the strength of this piece with its pendant “Quinn” for their display of technical ability combined with artistic vision. This is a wonderful fresh depiction of nudes that evokes a sense of contemplative self awareness.


Honorable Mention awards have been given by each of six founding members of Queen City 15 Gallery for their personal selection of a piece of art.


Helena Holland Breger “Buff Women Series 1”

I love the strength, guts, and humor of this painting!

Dorthy Ray “Boy Series 1” 

Archival pigment print photograph

They are beautiful, challenging, intimate and unexpected. 

- Lisa Winika QC15


Helen Hosking “Trust” 

I love her use of a very hard material — stoneware — she evokes tenderness and the beauty of the human form unadorned.

-Donna Blackwell QC15


Robert Oehl “Date Night (Suitors)”

It has such a sweet and tender vulnerability to it. I also love the way the process works to enhance those qualities.

Richard Arnold “Mister Underpants Jamie” 

Ink on paper

I love the forthright intimacy of this beautifully sensitive line drawing.

-William Noonan QC15
