2015 Show Awards

We are fortunate to be able to offer merit and purchase awards at each show, along with some special awards for individual shows. These awards are funded by ticket sales, the silent auction, and donors and sponsors.

The Judge for both events was Sherry Browne, a visual artist, working paper cut and collage artist, and owner of Studio Open Gallery in Folly Beach, South Carolina.  Awards were distributed on Friday of each weekend.

Awards Given at the May 22-24 show

Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley distributed some of the awards at the show. Unfortunately, he was not able to stay long due to other opening day activities.
