2020 CVG Show Details

The annual CVG Show is one of the largest and most prestigious art competitions in the Northwest. 383 artists from 93 cities and towns throughout Washington submitted 1100 images of artworks for consideration. The competition’s jurors, Liana Bennett and Beverly Hanson chose 151 pieces from these submissions for inclusion in the show. Jurors will choose the recipients of cash prizes going to 10 artists in multiple categories, including the “Best of Show Mayor’s Award” of $1500. Additionally, there will be over $2500 in purchase awards by area businesses, a $300 People’s Choice Award sponsored by the West Sound Arts Council, multiple $25 Jurors’ Awards, and a $1,000 Best of Kitsap Award sponsored by the Cultural Arts Foundation Northwest.

Exhibition Co-chairs Alan Newberg and Cindy DuVall say: “The 2020 show has attracted top quality artists from every quarter of our state to submit their best work. Attendees and collectors will find a museum quality show of work ranging in size from large sculptures, paintings and fiber art pieces to small prints, photos and jewelry, ranging in style from exquisite traditional work to provocative contemporary works and deeply personal expressions. Some of these artists are well established professionals, and others are emerging talents in the world of art. Our state is very rich with talent.”

There will be a special opening on Sunday, January 19, from 12–4 p.m. with an Art Walk-through and Art Discussions led by the jurors Liana Bennett and Beverly Hanson from 1 to 3 p.m.. In addition, on each of the weekends of the 6-week show there will be a series of art events and art themed movies at the nearby Roxy Theater plus a concert by Pearl Django with jazz vocalist Gail Pettis.
