Masters of Domestic Animal Art 2023



Monday, 1 May 2023

This is Wild Heart Gallery's first annual curated and juried virtual art exhibition for Masters of Domestic Animal Art 2023. We set out to highlight outstanding animal art that focuses on animals that live and work with us. Awarded and selected artwork includes pets (like cats and dogs), horses, farm animals, birds, and more. The artists truly honored these animals.

It is the goal of Wild Heart Gallery to support and promote animal and wildlife artwork in a wide range of genres and styles. This show lives up to that mission. Styles range from hyper-realistic to contemporary and beyond. Artists embrace color, form, texture, and explore the relationships between animals, ourselves, and art.

Artwork for this exhibition was selected by jury based on theme, originality, technique, skill, and quality of work. Jurors were Sarah Soward, Sharon Eisley, and Ashli Kingfisher.

Congratulations to each artist whose work was accepted into Wild Heart Gallery's Masters of Domestic Animal Art 2023 international juried art exhibition!

Artist ( Description ): 

Best in Show
Light of Life, by Dulce Patricia Alonzo Diaz

From the artist, "I consider horses as one of the most interesting animals and with which I can connect more, is that there is something in it that speaks to you without words, it recognizes the purity of your being and the light of your spirit, they are clear where they are going on the path of life and always choose to look for the bright side of life so as not to stumble."

Venue ( Address ):

Wild Heart Gallery , Cathedral City
