About the show and juror.
This annual SVA event, coordinated by Artist Steve Thimmig, continues to offer an upscale theme. And this year “The Golden Frame Award”, created by SVA Artist, Ray Hagerman, has taken center stage as the coveted award to win.
The “Best of Show” winner’s name will be added to the award but the trophy will stay in the gallery. In addition, there will be cash, awards, and ribbons given to 1st, 2nd, 3rd. – two Honorable Mentions as well as the very important, “People’s Choice” Award that will be given to the artist deemed to be the best work in the show by visitor votes during the opening reception.
