Paint Annapolis 2017 Winners
After a week of both working and playing, the artists all finished their incredible pieces and nothing was left but to hand out accolades. After much thoughtful deliberation from both, Juror Wil Scott made the selections for our Nocturne awards and Juror Richard Sneary made the final overall awards decisions. We were also thrilled to have Kate Tyrrell, Consular & Cultural Affairs Counsellor for the the Embassy of Ireland on hand to help us celebrate.
We would like to thank all the artists, sponsors, and volunteers for their time and participation -without you, Paint Annapolis would not be possible! A particularly hearty ‘THANK YOU!!!’ to our presenting sponsor, Annapolis Subaru, for their incredible support.
And of course, the fun isn’t over – while at tonight’s wonderful awards reception many pieces found new homes, there are still plenty of masterworks still available. Make sure that you come in to see us Saturday from 11am-5pm and Sunday from 11am-3pm to take home your favorite piece!
