Much of the artwork, ranging in style from abstract to representational, and created in different mediums such as watercolour, oil, acrylic, mixed media, and collage, will be exhibited for the first time and all will be available for sale. The awards ceremony is open to the public, and art lovers and collectors are welcome to attend and speak directly with the artists.
