November 18, 2013 (FPRC) -- On November 12, 2013, Artist John Ross Palmer traveled to St. Louis, Missouri for the announcement of the winner of the 2014 First Class Club Essay Contest. This year’s judge, Molly Butterworth, Director of the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, MO, was the ideal decision-maker for this year’s writing contest that focused on a “type of transportation.” Butterworth gave intense deliberation before choosing the winner to be the essay on the car by inaugural FCC Member Judy Lindsay of Clemson, SC.
John Ross Palmer’s First Class Club is an exclusive group of art patrons that supports his annual study-abroad adventure. The first step in the process is this highly-competitive essay contest that will begin his research and inspiration for his next prized, rare and sure-to-be-celebrated international art series. Palmer’s international series in recent years have taken him to Sao Paulo (2013), Jerusalem (2012), Dublin (2011) and Berlin (2010). Butterworth joins a notable group of Essay Judges that includes KPRC’s Frank Billingsley (Dublin), Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt (Jerusalem) and CUNY Professor Aaron Kozbelt (Sao Paulo). Palmer honored Butterworth’s participation with gifts to the Museum of Transportation of an original piece of art, “Horsepower,” as well as a monetary donation. Palmer, an auto enthusiast, was thrilled to receive an exclusive, private tour of the Earl C. Lindberg Automobile Center guided by Butterworth.
Lindsay and her husband Bill will be honored with the win with inclusion of her essay in the Catalogue that documents Palmer’s 2014 international art series as well as a fine-dining experience at the legendary Tony’s. Palmer’s 2014 study-abroad destination will be announced at a private gathering of the First Class Club at his gallery in January of 2014. His international travel will likely take place in June of 2014 with an unveiling of the series in July 2014 at his Historic Houston Heights Art Gallery & Studio.
