Introducing our Award Winners in 2016 Spring Online Juried Show!
AWA is excited to announce the award winners in this year’s Spring Online Juried Show! Many thanks to our awards juror Helena Fox, gallery owner of Helena Fox Fine Art in Charleston, SC, for her thoughtful selection in determining our award winners from the outstanding work of our 120 finalists. Helena stated that she was honored to be awards juror for the show and found “the work was very good and AWA has generated an excellent group of female artists”. The 2016 Spring Online Juried Show will be displayed on our Gallery page through April 2017 – to view the slideshow, click here.
And much gratitude goes out to this year’s show sponsors – Blick Art Materials, Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff, Fine Art Connoisseur magazine, Jack Richeson & Co., and Wet-Case Carrying Systems.
