About Artist Youxin Yang: By Zhana Levitsky From: American Art Awards 2013 “Stoney Award” Winner Youxin Yang Paints for Peace. “On September 5th, 2013 The American Art Awards announced via their media outlet, Highlight Hollywood, that Ms. Yang won the 2013 Stoney Award prize for most overall wins by one artist. That is over a dozen awards recognized by the AAA, including placing in the competitive Oil- Human Figure category and dominating with four separate wins in the Pastel category. This news comes after Youxin Yang’s recent work won recognition in two separate national museum juried art competitions. ‘Peace- I’ was recently chosen by The Highland Museum & Discovery Center in Ashland, Kentucky for inclusion in its “National Juried Art Show”. The opening reception took place on September 5th, 2013 and that night ‘Peace- I’ won the 2nd place award in the Water Media category. ‘Peace- II’ has won the "People, Faces and Figures" Exhibition Honorable Mention Award from The Leading Artists Online Gallery earlier this year. ‘Peace- III’ has been chosen for inclusion in the "26th Annual September Competition Exhibition" by The Alexandria Museum of Art, in Alexandria, Louisiana, which will be on display until November.” By Kainat Akhter From: Peace: A Solo Exhibition of the Art of Youxin Yang. “Youxin Yang MD, PhD, is a Chinese-American painter as well as an award-winning scientist. Dr. Yang's paintings have been exhibited internationally, including the Art Museum of Nanjing, China, Espace Richelieu in Paris, France, and L'Essence Art Gallery in Boston, and at the Cultural Exchange Center in East Boston. She won the Grand Jury award at the New York International Art Festival in 2005, and her latest series of calligraphic paintings won Featured Member Artist at the March 2008 National Women's Caucus for Art (WCA) Featured Artist Competition. She is also a filmmaker and she wrote, directed, and composed the score for her film entitled "Feuille" ("Leaf" in English). The film won 24 awards worldwide, including the Top (Platinum) Remi Award at the 37th WorldFest Houston and Best Drama in the New York Film Festival.” By Tommy Lightfoot Garrett From: Exclusive: 2013 American Art Awards Winners Named, Highlight Hollywood Celebrates Success. “Yang is the fitting winner of the 2013 Stoney Award (donated annually by one of the surviving fighters for equal rights at the infamous 1969 Stonewall Riots) for her dozen brave works winning various categories of the 2013 American Art Awards. In future articles we will feature Yang’s specific wins and categories. Not surprisingly, Yang’s paintings depict the same deeper aspects of human nature as her film: honesty, generosity, beauty, and an idealized world where spirituality trumps politics. Previous wins include Grand Jury Award winner at the 2005 New York International Art Festival, 2008 WCA national Featured Member Artist Competition, 1st Place Award and Honorable Mention at the “People, Faces, and Figures” leading artists gallery art exhibition in 2013, in addition to prior American Art Award competitions.”
