Your Choice 2017
Your Choice is the Naples Art Association’s annual non-juried exhibition. It provides an opportunity for Naples Art Association contributors to present their artwork to a large audience with no jury process requirement. The exhibition is called “Your Choice” because artists and viewers make the choices. Artists decide which artwork they will exhibit while viewers attending the reception decide who will receive the awards. There are five awards with a total cash value of $1,000. Everyone attending the August 11 reception may cast one vote for a favorite artist. Voting is overseen by the Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office.
*First Place $250: Joel Shapses, Magellanic Penguin
*Second Place $150: Morris Herstein, The Red Barn in Palouse
*Honorable Mention $50: Elvis Swift, Looking for Some Perspective
*Honorable Mention $50: Michael Beard, Flight Through the Flowers
