“Polished Perfection,” a painting by artist Sam Lyons of a gorgeous Luscombe Silvaire, has been selected for exhibition in the Horizons of Flight Aviation Art Exhibition and Competition at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The juried aviation art show is sponsored by CAE SimuFlite and Flying magazine.
More than 100 entries were submitted but only 32 were chosen for display at CAE SimuFlite’s DFW training facility. Lyons said he was understandably pleased by the news. “I painted ‘Polished Perfection’ for myself, just because the Luscombe was such a beautiful airplane. Having it chosen for this honor is something special,” he said, adding that he was especially pleased because the jurists were fellow aviation artists whose opinions and talents he respects.
The paintings will be displayed from Jan. 30 through April 28. Winners will be announced in February.
