These four dedicated artists were picked from scores of applicants from around the United States, a great percentage of which were repeat applicants. Hard-working artists submit a written application with art images, essays and a recommendation to a jury panel, and then, as a Finalist, they present themselves for “speed dating” style interviews at Palmer’s newly-completed Escapist Artist Gallery & Studios (aka “The Chrysalis”). Panels for scoring are comprised of top Palmer patrons, including: FCC Members Karen Bean and Bobby Paul Davis plus collectors Carolyn Watts and Donna Vallone (2010 Vallone Award Winner).

"This class is young, innovative and mega-talented!”
Palmer’s Art Movement of Escapism is aimed to forever destroy the stereotype of the struggling artist. His mentorship program, founded in 2009, teaches artists how to sell on their own and not be tied to the traditional art gallery system. Palmer does this as a means of giving back to the art world--it is entirely free.
