Judging and Awards
The show is judged and awards will be based on the judges' decisions. Among the categories that the judges will consider for awards will be oil painting, acrylic painting, printmaking, watercolor, drawing, pastel and sculpture. This year there are two new judging categories; photography and digital art. Fifty-one Association members artists will participate and one hundred thirty-four pieces will be on display.
In addition to the general entries on display, there will be a raffle of an original painting and a selection of small matted original pieces for sale at ten dollars each.
Gerri Harvey, a Gilford resident, has generously donated a framed original painting, "Summer in New Hampshire" for the show's raffle. She is an award-winning painter who displays her work in Lakes Region galleries.
The art event and the unique downtown location combine to make this an interesting and worthwhile visit.
