Paint Annapolis 2018 Winners

After a week of both working and playing, the artists have all finished their incredible pieces and it’s time for accolades! After much thoughtful deliberation from both, Juror Richard Niewerth made the selections for our Nocturne awards and Juror Al Gury made the final overall awards decisions.

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 are finding new homes, there are still plenty of masterful works still available. Make sure that you come in to see us Saturday from 11am-5pm and Sunday from 11am-4pm to take home your favorite piece!

Plus – for the first time you can see – and purchase all of the Paint Annapolis pieces in our state-of-the-art online gallery. Pick your favorites!
