Congratulations to the prizewinners at this past weekend's Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival. Many of them are members of ArtFairInsiders.com and old friends of mine and certainly well-deserved. It is a pleasure to see such fine work being rewarded.
Thanks to Jay Downie, director of the MSFWAF for sending me this information.
Award stipends of $10,500 were distributed to Best of Show and seven Merit Award Winners. Jury exemption for 2013 has also be given to fourteen Juror Award winners.
