The Rock Island Art Guild Fine Arts Exhibition has been organized by the Guild since 1970 and hosted for the last six years by the Figge Art Museum. This year, artists living within 200 miles of the Figge working in any medium, including sound, performance, video, painting, sculpture, and works on paper, were invited to apply and submit up to three works for consideration. Susan Watts, owner and director of Olson-Larson Galleries in Des Moines, selected the works for the exhibition and chose this year’s award winners. Awards for first and second place, the Sally MacMillan Watercolor Award, the Founder’s Award, the Zeivel Harris Sculpture Award, and the Honorable Mention Award were presented on March 3 as well as the new $300 New Media Award presented to an artist working in video, sound, or digital art. And of course the People’s Choice Award and Children’s Choice Award winners were also presented. Below is a list of the winners:
