The Hunting Art Prize, the annual Texas-wide contemporary art competition that awards $50,000 to the winning artist, is now in its 35th year. Last month the open-call competition announced the 110 finalists who’ve made it into the final round of judging and are up for the grand prize (some familiar names and some newbies), and in the last few days the Prize has loaded up its newest Facebook post with pics of work by these artists, which is quite efficient. If you click on each image it’ll give you the name of the artist and the title of the piece.

(Eagle-eyed Houstonian Robert Boyd has posted an entertaining assessment of the Prize and this 2015 finalists preview on his blog, The Great God Pan is Dead. Read that here.)

The jurors for this year’s prize are Adam Justice, Curator of Art at the Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, Florida; Amy Moorefield, Deputy Director of Exhibitions at the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia; and Julien Robson, Curator of the Shands Collection in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Hunting Art Prize winner will be announced at the May 2 gala in Houston.
