Richards has begun his compelling and exhaustive artistic process. Below is a promo of his work for ArtSmarter Prize 2016:
Dallas, TX, August 10, 2015 – Glasstire is pleased to announce a unique partnership with artist Frank ArtSmarter for a Texas-wide initiative called the ArtSmarterPrize 2016, with the award ceremony to be hosted in Dallas in April of 2016. Cash prizes and artist-designed trophies will be presented to winning artists, or maybe to every artist—we don’t know—and the blockbuster event is expected to draw perhaps dozens of online views. This is a themed invitational, and the theme for artists to consider when creating incredibly pandering work for the ArtSmarterPrize 2016 is: “What Would You Do For Love?”
Participating Artists include Rebecca Carter, Chuck & George, Lauren Cross, Heyd Fontenot, Justin Ginsberg, Sally Glass, Courtney Hamilton, Robert Jackson Harrington, Patrick Kelly, Kelly Kroener, Annette Lawrence, Rachel Livedalen, Shelby Meier, Devon Nowlin, Jamie Panzer, Ryder Richards, Sue Anne Rische, Gaile Robinson, Lauren Smart, Erin Stafford, Kevin Todora, Liz Trosper Taylor, Sally Warren, and Lauren Woods.
