New this year, we awarded a student entry: Harper Hambrick from Woodland Middle School also had her work turned into a poster! Harper’s award-winning work is titled Sunset at Brohard Beach.

Thank you to all of the artists who entered the contest. A special thank you to Aimee Odette and Michael Rank at Collectors Gallery & Framery (114 Nokomis Ave S) for hosting the unveiling event and reception in their beautifully renovated and expanded gallery space.
