Winner of the Buffalo Bill Art Show and Sale, “Signs of Spring” by Nicolo Balkanski

The judges who awarded Balkanski first prize and the $20,000 purse explained in a joint statement: “Balkanski has created a narrative that engages the viewer in an anecdotal moment. The barn tells the story of an accumulated past, and as with anything or anyone who is a little worse for the wear, the barn is still up, still functioning, but is fairly worn. With his painterly strokes, the artist went to extraordinary lengths to create this piece for this particular show.”
