. McDonough artist Ayana Ross wins largest women-only painting prize « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ARTS ATL – Georgia painter Ayana Ross has won the 2021 Bennett Prize, the largest prize given solely to women figurative painters. Her work explores identity and cultural awareness in the everyday lives of African Americans in the American South. Ross, who lives and works in McDonough, will receive $50,000 to create new work for a solo exhibition that ultimately will travel the country. “Ross’ paintings create story fragments that invite viewers to insert themselves and see their own experiences in her work.”
