Artist of the Year

table display

Artist of the Year competition is an opportunity for artists to gain recognition for their art by displaying one or two recent pieces at our monthly meeting. Either the guest speaker or group voting awards first, second, and third place and lots of positive feedback.

At the end of the year, points accumulated from monthly meetings are used to determine gift cash for first, second, and third.
