On the first weekend of its Fall 2013 show, The Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit honored 25 artists with awards in the categories of fine arts and fine crafts. The awards totaled over four thousand dollars.
The judges for fine arts and photography included non-exhibiting artists Carol Teller and Robert G. Carter (a long-time faculty member at Nassau Community College) and Paul Stockschlaeder, a member of the WSOAE Board as well as that of the Salmagundi Club. Sculpture and fine crafts were juried by our veteran judge, Monona Rossol, principal of ACTSNY (Arts, Crafts and Theater Safety, NY).
Artists and crafts people brought their submissions for prize jurying to the Salmagundi Club at 47 Fifth Avenue on Saturday morning, August 31st. They returned on the next day, Sunday, September 1st, to pick up their work and learn if they had won an award.
