Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

 — The 2013 ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival presented by Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center and produced by the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce Don McWhorter of Carrollton, Ga., has won Best in Show for his work in ceramics.

“I am very flattered to be named Best in Show at ArtiGras,” said McWhorter, who has shown his ceramic work at 18 of the last 20 ArtiGras Fine Art Festivals. “The other artists here are just phenomenal, and I honored just to be in the same show as them, let alone win an award.”

We have 2 (or is it 3?) of Don's pieces in our house. You can spot his work a mile away - nothing else like it. Well deserved.

Don does have very nice work. What is especially unusual is that he doesn't have "showstoppers" but a solid body of work that is clearly his own done to perfection.
