Upcoming exhibit: 2013 Sun Bowl Art Exhibit. 14th ANNUAL SUN BOWL ART EXHIBITION An overview and history about our exhibit The annual art competition and exhibit is a revival of the great El Paso art tradition known as the Sun Carnival Art Exhibit, which began in 1949. This exhibit will showcase works by living artist and serve to enhance the International Museum of Art’s permanent collection. We have extended an invitation to artists worldwide to be a part of this exhibition. This year’s judge is renowned artist Aleksander Titovets. As a painter, Aleksander gravitates to what he calls “quiet paintings”, paintings which reveal a reflective and optimistic spirit. Titovets has been a guest speaker, art teacher, and juror since coming to the United States. Although the painter now resides in El Paso, Texas; he finds his inspiration in memories of his homeland. Some of his noted credits include “Best of Show” at the International Fine Art Competition for four years in a row. Also his portrait of former First Lady Laura Bush created “The First Ladies Gallery” in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
