HOUSTON, February 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Hunting PLC announced today that 113 Texas artists have been selected to move on to the final round of judging in the 2011 Hunting Art Prize.
These artists now enter the second phase of the two-tiered jury process for the Prize. The panel of jurors that narrowed the submissions to the final 113 will reconvene in April to determine the winner.
