On Wednesday, Patrons’ Show Fundraiser juror Jack Rasmussen, the Director and Curator of the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center, visited the gallery to pick out the four judge’s awards. We’re very pleased to announce the award winners!
Yellowstone Thermal Zone #6, archival inkjet print, by Pete McCutchen. Winner of the Clemente Best in Show for Contemporary Realism award.
Old Town Marina, oil on primed paper, by Matt Pinney. Winner of the Clemente Faculty Award.
Dinghy Jam, oil on linen, by Cindy Packard Richmond. Winner of the TFAA Artist Award.
Tiny Dancer, colored pencil, by Wendy Donahoe. Winner of the Van Landingham Award.
These are the four awards chosen by the judge. Two more awards will be determined by ticketholders: the $1,000 Clemente Collector Award, which goes to the first piece chosen in the drawing, and the $250 Geri Gordon Award, to the popular vote winner! These will be announced at the drawing and here on the blog.
The 2017 Patron’s Show Fundraiser will be held Sunday, February 19. A few tickets are still available for purchase! The artworks are on view now in the gallery and on Flickr.
