Northwind Art is celebrating the 20th year of this juried exhibit of small format artworks from regional artists executed within the last three years. But this year, there are a few twists. Juror Jaleesa Johnston has been invited to jury all art entries in person, on-site, rather than online, making for a much more immediate experience. Award winners will be announced live at the Juror Talk (see information below.)

You can still vote for the VIEWERS CHOICE AWARD, this can be done in person by visiting the Jeanette Best Gallery.
