Anthony R. Whelihan - Best Single Image

Anthony R. Whelihan is one of five award winners in the latest Still Point Art Gallery online exhibition: Still Point V. Whelihan won Best in Show-Single Image for his mixed media piece, Latter Day Geisha

Whelihan is chiefly a portrait artist who believes everyone shows their life on their face. He typically uses bold primary colors into his work and says, “color can alter mood and can excite imagination, enticing the viewer to look beyond the surface.” Latter Day Geisha is an amazing piece of art, displaying a courageous use of vibrant color, imaginative design, and a striking interpretation of subject. 

Anthony R. Whelihan is a well-known national artist. He has done commissioned work for the NFL alumni organization, the United States olympic ski team, Nobel conference XXXII, the Minnesota Vikings and Timberwolves, and many other national and local organizations. Whelihan's work has been widely exhibited and has earned him many awards. 

Whelihan has five images in the Still Point V show. His work,  along with that of twenty-nine other artists, may be viewed until July 31st in Still Point Art Gallery’s online gallery.
