Final Art-O-Matic Top 10 Artists List
As most of you know, during the recent Artomatic exhibition, I received quite a few lists by artists, gallery owners, curators, and art critics.
These lists detailed their “picks” as the most notable artists (in their view) of DC’s giant Artlovefest. Since the lists came out, six area galleries have already scheduled exhibitions (and some of them already on exhibit), and there are more coming in 2005 for many more Artomatic artists, based in part from these lists.
I had also promised to gather a list of the top 10 Artomatic artists who appeared the most in all the lists submitted to me. I recorded all the artists and the number of times that his or her name appeared on the lists.
Provided that the logistics are worked out, these artists in the final list will be invited to exhibit their work by a gallery in Canada.
The lists were sent in by:
James W. Bailey
F. Lennox Campello
Jean Lawlor Cohen
Sarah Finlay & Patrick Murcia
Anne C. Fisher
And here is the final Top 10ish List (in order of number of appearances in the above lists).
Cornelius and Edmunds, coming in second, also shared an equal number of lists between them.
Third most mentioned were Tate, Edwards, and Mathis, and they also had equal appearances.
