2017 Prizewinners: Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival

From Alice Moulton at the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival, March 17-19, 2017:

Hi Connie,

I must say, we had a fabulous festival this year.  The weather was a little cooler than normal and wonderful. The artwork was amazing and the artists, judges and attendees kept remarking about the high quality of art they were seeing.

The Best of Show winner, Ken Tutjamnong, was a first time attendee and seemed to be very popular with the other attending artists. This is a $10,000 purchase award.
Artists love the Winter Park Art Festival not only for the sales but the bountiful prize money. This show does it right. The multitude of prizes also includes an invitation to the next year's event, insuring the artists a start on their next year's schedule plus also guaranteeing the WPSAF a solid base for a fine show for the following year.

I am so glad that Ken Tutjamnong won Best of Show...He was across from me at Gasparilla along with being the nicest guy, I could not take my eyes off his work ...it is truly stunning. So happy for him.

I've never seen Ken's work and was curious about it. I found this video on YouTube.com, Ken Tutjamnong "Painting the City:'": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3r5aRESqpQ
