The 2021 Society of Washington Artists hosted their annual Spring Show both virtually and physically this year. It was a professionally judged show and sale with a wide variety of art media and disciplines, including a $500 cash prize for Best in Show with the winners selected by Judge Karen Madsen! There were 182 outstanding entries for the virtual show from April 15th to May 31st.
Judge Karen Madsen judged the entries and awarded a Best in Show, first, second, and third places and two honorable mentions in each of the three medium categories, Oil and Acrylic, Water Media, and Other Mediums. There were also three People’s Choice Awards as well.
The artwork that won awards was physically shown at the Camas Gallery throughout the month of May. Congratulations to the People's Choice award winners of our recent 2021 Spring Show! The People's Choice Awards were displayed at the Camas Gallery throughout June.
