I was selected to be part of this year's group:Upstream People Gallery
"Your Farewell Came Too Late" and "Nook" received Special Recognition Merit Awards:
"Marcus Pierno is able to use a rich painterly quality in his oil paintings. Nook is quite tasteful with the brushwork. Your Farewell Came Too Late while more refined, shows an interesting contrast in size and space."'
- Laurence Bradshaw, juror
