This year’s IWS Rotunda Show was exceptionally well attended and the public responded with great enthusiasm to our exhibition! Bonnie Liles was in charge of managing our Voter’s Choice Award and she counted all of the ballots. With OVER 500 VOTES we can now announce our 39th Annual Capitol Rotunda Art Show Voter’s Choice Award Winners!
A HUGE Congratulations to:
1st Place – Priscilla Patterson – Post Falls, ID – “Life is a River”
2nd Place – Paula Guth – Boise, ID – “Morning Arrival, Idaho”
We would be remiss not to mention the runners-up, as the votes were exceptionally close:
3rd Place – Kayla Cuellar – Caldwell, ID – “Winter Wonder”
4th Place – Debra Colliver – Meridian, ID – “Peace Like a River”
We want to thank each and every one of you who participated. It is worth mentioning that this year’s voting was very dispersed, which is a testament to the quality of ALL of the work exhibited in the show. Each artist brought their very best, giving the public an exceptionally difficult choice when asked to pick their favorite.
We will post more about the 2023 Rotunda Show, the award winners, and their paintings in the next newsletter. Thanks again to all of the artists who participated, you should all be incredibly proud of the exhibition we provided the public.
Beth Trott and Bonnie Liles
