10th Annual Vail Valley Fine Art Show Award Recipients

Each year Jurors take time out their day to walk through the Fine Art Show and decide who has the best work in six separate categories: 3D, Abstract, Figure/Portrait, Landscape, Still Life and Wildlife/Animals. Each category is further divided into Art and Photography. Congratulations to our winners! (See list below)

The Jurors this year were Sean Boggs (Photographer and Photography Instructor at CMC), Joyce Bradley (Manager of Zugor Gallery and Gib Singleton Gallery in Vail), and Bill Rey (Owner of Claggett-Rey Gallery in Edwards). Thank you to the 2023 jurors for your time!

The show will be available to the public until November 3rd, so stop by during normal CMC operating hours to see this amazing collection of local works.
