Kate Protage Selected as 1 of 6 finalists for City Arts Best of Art Walk Awards

City Arts has selected the 6 finalists for the Spring Art Walk Awards celebration. The artists have a chance to win $1000 and a spotlight in City Arts.

They are:
Kate Protage, Phinneywood, Bherd Studios
Sarah Loertscher, West Seattle, Click!
Carla G, West Seattle, Carmilia's
Greg Boudreau, Capitol Hill, Ghost Gallery
Jesse Higman, Capitol Hill, Vermillion
Karen Hackenberg, Capitol Hill, Vermillion

Here's a link to a slideshow of the winners.

Kate Protages' piece entitled "Exhibit A" was in our March "Book Club" exhibit at Bherd Studios Gallery. So not only is she representing her work, but also the honor of our name & our neighborhood ;-) So please come out for the celebration, vote for her & make sure her piece wins.

Kate will be back in our gallery in May for "SubUrban" along with Kellie Talbot and another selected finalist on the Art Walk Awards list, Greg Boudreau.

Here are the details on the party...

Art Walk Awards will be held Thursday April 28th at FRED WILDLIFE REFUGE

Full bar, complimentary Blue Moon summer seasonal, DJ Swervewon, visual delights from Dumb Eyes & more. Doors 8pm, 21+, admission is free when you RSVP to promos@cityartsmagazine.com with ART WALK in the subject line.


About the Art Walk Awards: In 2011, four winners will each receive $1,000 and a profile of their artwork in City Arts magazine. Together with our 2011 partners, the Art Walk Consortium, businesses and galleries that participate in neighborhood art walks can nominate a favorite piece of art for each month. Each spring, summer, winter and fall, we narrow dozens of submissions down to six finalists, and then throw a party in their honor (with delicious and free Blue Moon seasonal beers, music, food and more). Anyone attending the event gets to vote for the winner and we'll hand out the award that night.
