ArtTalk – Meet the Patrons' Award Winners
The Patrons’ Awards are the highest honor awarded to the artists in the Phillips' Mill Juried Art Exhibition. There are three awards given each year: painting; drawing, pastel or printmaking; and sculpture. This year all three winners are women. Mary Ann Bowman’s work, “Beach Grill Ocean City II” won the Patrons’ Award for Painting. Leslie Schlegel’s drawing “Stuck in the Past” won the Patrons’ Award for Drawing, Pastel or Printmaking. The Patrons’ Award for Sculpture was awarded to Tricia Zimic for “Diligence/Kintsugi.” Join us when we meet these women, discuss their works and look into their inspiration.
