For those who are new to FAA, the Tony Award is passed from artist to artist, roughly on a monthly basis, as an honor for various qualities or contributions. The winning artist gets to choose the next recipient (always a REALLY tough job).
The Award Sculpture was created by our own Tony Murray. The sculpture is shipped forward, each winner engraves his or her name on the base, and on it goes to the next artist.
This thread is to list the past and present holder of this award..
Here is the complete list in the correct order. Each new recipient chooses the next Tony Award winner. The name in bold at the bottom of the list is who holds the award at present.
Sure am glad I found this - there have been a few names added to the list since I was last active here and they sure are fine additions to the Tony Award. Great Art.
Congratulations Tate, Joanne, and Ken. Welcome to the group.
Poor Beth, just can't get enough to do can ya? You sure are a trooper, always stepping up to plug the hole. Thanks Elizabeth for all you do. Hey did I ever mention I am afflicted with a bad case of "Yellow Hair" disease? Like your new avatar .... ;-]
And thank you Lorraine for hanging in there as long as you could, keeping this current for us. Hmmm, I gotta go check your site and see what new, incredible stuff you have posted.
Thanks, Beth. Love your avatar!!!!!!! Glad to see the names of the worthy recipients, shall miss Lorraine, and am glad you're doing your usual by taking on yet more pleasant work for we members. Cheers.
Whoo, hooooooo, Lynda, Congratulations, and all Australian members salute you, how fabulous, and how deserving you are......you're a fine artist indeed and Australia is proud of you....it's been a good year for the Aussies so far......love this one especially:::::::
WOW! Thank you ALL so much for these amazing comments! I was totally unaware of this award's existence until Jim nominated me! I couldn't believe the trophy travelled all the way from Up Over to Down Under!!!! This 'Aussie Sheila' is thrilled beyond words! I don't know how you people posted those images of my works, but I am stunned with your warmth and your comments! I have nominated another Aussie for the award. I think seeing as the 'Tony' has got this far, it would be nice to keep down this end of the planet for awhile! However, I will let Beth or Tony do the big announcement!!!!! In the Aussie vernacular - "I love youse all"!!!!!!
I have been a bit under the weather...... in other words, sick like a big dog. So, I have not been able to go to the post office lately and mail the coveted Tony Award to the next recepient. I will do so as soon as I am able.
