This year we honor a determined and patient cohort of 63 artists from all disciplines and experience levels from across the Treasure Valley. Totaling $137,000 in awards, selected through a comprehensive peer-review panel of fellow artists, educators, and creative professionals in the community.

It is a great honor to recognize these artists and their contribution to our communities.
