Organizers are accepting entries for The Trawick Prize: Bethesda Contemporary Art Awards, the prestigious fine art show that includes a $10,000 prize to the best in show winner.
All original 2-D and 3-D paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures, fiber arts, digital arts, mixed media and videos will be accepted. The work must have been completed within the last two years and by artists who live in Maryland, Virginia or Washington, D.C.
A three-person jury, including Phillips Collection senior curator Dr. Vesela Sretenovic, will choose up to 10 finalists whose work will be displayed in Bethesda Urban Partnership’s Gallery B studio (7700 Wisconsin Ave.) starting in September 2013.
Last year, a Baltimore woman won top prize for her oil paintings, based on photographs of scale models of important historical sites around the world.
Bethesda Urban Partnership is accepting entries for the contest until April 1. For more information on the contest and how to apply, visit the event website.
The Trawick Prize also celebrated its tenth anniversary with a “Best of the Best” competition, which put to a vote all the Best in Show works of the event’s first 10 years.
