WSOAE 2009 Fall Show Prize Winners

On the first weekend of its Fall 2009 show, the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit honored 28 artists with awards in the categories of fine arts and fine crafts. The awards totaled more than $4,000.

For fine arts and photography, the jurors included non-exhibiting artists Bernice Sokol Kramer, William Behnken and Jeffrey Berman. The same judges selected the prizes for sculpture and fine crafts, as our regular judge in these categories, Monona Rossol, was regretfully not available.
