The Fine Art Awards will be presented in a lecture given by juror Robin Poteet.

Once again we are proud to offer more than $1,500 in cash prizes for work chosen by juror Poteet, with one People’s Choice prize to be voted on by the public. Poteet’s expertise comes from a long-standing career as a graphic designer and illustrator. After transitioning to full time painting in 2010, Watercolor Artist Magazine named her as one of their 10 national “Ones to Watch” (Dec. 2010 issue). She is a popular workshop instructor throughout the mid-Atlantic and maintains a studio in Salem, VA.

This evening we will also unveil the Festival’s fine art poster of the Signature Art by Adelaide Moss. Posters will be for sale for $10 each, and the artist will be on hand to sign them.
