This season’s salon-style conversation in the Alper Initiative for Washington Art takes a different approach to celebrating Washington artists by recognizing the recipients of the Trawick Prize over the past 15 years. The Trawick Prize for Contemporary Arts is one of the first regional competitions with the largest award that annually recognizes visual artists, established by Carol Trawick, a longtime community activist in Montgomery County.
At this event, each of the Trawick Prize-winning artists will speak about their process, and one will be awarded with the Ruby Award for “Best in Show” that night.
Participating artists include: Lauren Adams, Richard Cleaver, Larry Cook, Neil Feather, Mia Feuer, Lillian Bayley Hoover, Gary Kachadourian, Maggie Michael, Jonathan Monaghan, Jiha Moon, David Page, James Rieck, Jo Smail and Rene Trevino
This event is free and open to all. Space is limited. Please RSVP
Immediately followed by the opening reception from 6-9 pm.
