Since 2003, the Bethesda-based Trawick Prize competition has awarded more than $120,000 in prize money to artists from the Washington area. On Friday from 6 to 9 p.m., Gallery B will host a reception for a retrospective on the contest’s first 10 winners -- and celebrating the member of that elite group fortunate enough to win the new Sapphire Award, a $10,000 prize created to honor the “best” artist among the 10 previous winners.
Chosen by a super jury of previous judges, the Sapphire winner was announced Nov. 3: painter Jo Smail of Baltimore. But you should come out and check out her competition -- which was pretty stiff -- along with the winner of the People’s Choice award, Washington’s own Mia Feuer.
