My Bio
My name is John James Valley I've been working on a series of drawings called "The Anatomy of a Mechanized Stallion" which I began in mid September of 2015. This body of work is highly detailed, large drawings done in pencil, three done in pen and one in watercolor. Since the three years that I have been working on this series I have been awarded the Don S. Williams Grant, a showing at Ferry Building Gallery in West Vancouver, B.C. July 18th to 30th, 2017. A one day showing on August 19th, 2017 at a studio/gallery on 4th street in Vancouver. I also exhibited my work in two art crawls with both showings that had an estimated seven hundred plus people that came through the highly profiled 195 Pemberton Studios in North Vancouver and two Culture Days open studios events.

In my new picture, as the pieces break away from the stallion they collide with other pieces to produce even smaller pieces making this theory fitting to the narrative.

Why are there award shows for music, movies and TV and not an award show for the fine arts?
