:-) I loved winning the original. All the way to UK it flew!! Awesome

I used the fact I won it on a site the other day when they asked about awards won!

And to mid-western Canada! Abbie -- when you can -- could you please restore the link from your Page #3 of previous winners -- mine goes to an old page that I closed long ago.

Thanks :)

The awesome honor of becoming a recipient of the Tony Award, came at a very low time in my life, losing my house (Super Storm Sandy) and dealing with the initial hole in my head.

By the way, did I miss something?....Doesn't the current recipient still choose the next award winner?

 

Abbie Shores

It's slightly changed now, Roger, due to some things behind the scenes.

This way we get to keep an eye on it and where it's going

I'll do that shortly Carmen

 

Tony Murray

Yes Roger in a way they do. They can nominate and choose that person once they are "in the system"

I noticed you have to have their e-mail and I don't.

My pick is Victor Molev: https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/victor-molev.html?tab=artworkgalleries

Please use the website Tony linked to. :-)

I do not understand this... " noticed you have to have their e-mail and I don't. "

Abbie, on the Nomination page at the link to nominate form, it asks the nominator for the email of their chosen nominee.....and we
usually don't have people's emails, just the Contact on their profile page, not their personal email.

Thanks all involved. This is a beautiful award and so far, all recipients are so deserving of their Wins.
I'm going to think long about if/who I might nominate.

 

Abbie Shores

It should say, if you have it

It says

Do you have their email? Please place here if yes.

And you don't have to fill that part out........

Great seeing everyone, Tony, Carmen, Roger so glad of your recovery and you are doing ok, hello Abbie, Lise, VIVA, I am sorry to hear Susan is not feeling well. I for one was floored when nominated and received the award. I pretty much shared it with the entire City of New Orleans then sent it to Susan who also was in shock. I was so humbled and an honor to be part of a great tradition here at Fine Art America. Thanks Tony for re-posting I had wondered what became of the award since Susan had received the award last. I had been so busy with client projects had not been in the limelight of things here in the discussions......I hope Susan is doing better, I miss seeing her around....

The link Tony provided above I visited that site about two weeks ago or so, I followed a link from Kathy McCullen a link about writing, I just glanced and left, is this site the site Abbie designed its beautiful!!! Can any Fine Art America member join that site? Is there a fee associated? I did find the revision pages 1,2,3 and 4 all about The Tony Award II. Thank you for sharing and including the images I took of The Tony Award II while it was visiting New Orleans, LA I still get inquiries sentiments pertaining to the beautiful design of the award Tony Created and introduced.

Just looking back on the list of previous winners, makes me feel nostalgic. Some are still here, some come in and out but aren't around as much, and some are sadly no longer with us. Seeing Hal on there was sort of surreal. It's a unique kind of community here at FAA, and it's great to be a part of.

Also, I agree with Michael, your site is looking great Abbie!

Abbie the magazine looks awesome. I was about to hop in and comment around but I'm on the wrong computer and out of town, so nowhere near my spiral notebook with the passwords. If anything happens to that notebook, I'm toast. Agree with Shana about looking over the names ... the creme de al creme for sure.

BLOCKED??? There is no nudity :-O

 

Chance Kafka

I don't know! I can get onto things like YouTube and even Facebook. They do block nudity, games, or sites without the right SSL certificates. Not sure what else. thought you might like to be aware though!

 

Abbie Shores

Yes, thank you. It may be the SSL although it's secure

Abbie.

Confused by this statement;
Nominee - Who is it you think should receive the Tony Award? Please note they must be aware you are nominating them. *

No problem letting it go for vetting by whoever decides, but we have to tell the INDIVIDUAL we are nominating them??
Why do we need to let them know we are nominating them.
I feel several are deserving, yet one particularly stands predominant in my mind.
Do I have to contact that person to let him or her know. If so, why?

Whenever I was nominated for special group features, I was informed by the group administrator.
It was always an honor and a surprise, and I wholeheartedly appreciated the person nominating me;however,
I would have felt awkward if someone had emailed telling me they were going to do so, like they needed my permission...

Am I missing something here?

 

Tony Murray

Mike, The reason this is being done is so that the "Potential" recipient is on board with passing it along. For example you might nominate a person who may not necessarily be OK with receiving it or be able to ship the award to the next recipient. In that case you would nominate someone else. The current holder (to be announced in a few weeks) will be able to look at the potential list of nominees and be assured the award will be appreciated as well as moved along to the next person. It's slightly more complex than in the past but this is the result of unforeseen issues and loss of the first award. If you are feeling especially humble, you can also nominate yourself.

 

Abbie Shores

We will never tell

 

Mike Breau

Thank you Tony and Abbie!

So So Happy for those so honored but respectfully don't feel I would hardly come close to those that I feel are most deserving.
I informed my nominee and await a reply.

Hopefully it will be accepted so I can start filling out the form properly!

A revisit as a reminder to the next recipient, don't forget the hidden compartment at the bottom of the Tony Award II, a sliding door reveals a scroll for recipients to sign their signature, replace and slide the door back. I thought how genius of an idea the hidden compartment and scroll. Best of luck to all the new nominee's and next recipient !!!!!

@Mike

Mike, no one "deserves" the award...Hell, I don't deserve the award and I made it!. The spirit of the award is really to honor fellow artists. We all strive to one degree or another and are never recognized or even given nod by the "Art World" so this is really about paying it forward. Honor among our fellow artists, giving recognition to those left in the corner of the room, and yes, honoring those of great talent as well in the process.

@Michael. Yes, I was pleased to see everyone so far has signed the scroll.

Nine years ago when I had more hair, less fat, and a brushy smile. Love being included with such an illustrious gang of artists.

 

VIVA Anderson

A thought.
There can be only one Winner, but, could there be disclosure of the other agreeing/Nominees deserving,tho not Winners, without going
to the link,perhaps?

I've got my Nominee's agreement,btw.....shall post to the link.
When do nominations close?

 

Tony Murray

1 Month Ago

@Vivian,

The nominations never close. This is an ongoing list for potential recipients. Ideally the last holder of the award gets to pick from nominees.

I had an artist in mind to nominate, then on scrolling through saw they had won on a previous occasion. My question - is it o.k to still nominate this person?

Thank you

 

VIVA Anderson

Thanks, Tony........ok......am off to the Nominations page/link, b/c, I've got my Nominee's OK to do it. Cheers, V.

A couple of very nice nominations for the award.

 

Mike Breau

Thrilled to have completed my nomination. Had to get the e-mail address.

Form is tricky trying to figure!.
The double boxes have to have the same info!?!

E.G.- Do you have the email?

DO NOT: put in YES; then add the address.
DO : Just put in the address twice.

Same for your own! It's just a verification that you put it in right!

Congratulations to Ronald Walker the new recipient of the Tony Award. When I think about Ronald and his Contribution to FAA what comes to my mind most is his relentless topics of discussion which always enlighten the reader and provoke interesting discussions. But it is not that alone that sets Ronald apart from the casual artist. His work is unique, colorful and fearless, a true master of art!

Ronald is certainly an ARTIST in the truest form, creating paintings filled with combinations of complex and incongruent imagery, that always makes one ponder: WHY....and never WHY NOT

Each piece is an adventure to the EYE and MIND.

I congratulate all that nominated him
