Congratulations to these incredible artists, and all those who courageously gave us their art to consider. A big thank you to our incredible judge, Chief Lady Bird, for her careful consideration and time in selecting these works. It is never easy to judge a contest, especially when the submissions are so excellent. We appreciate the time, effort, and love put into this selection by Chief Lady Bird, and everyone who’d taken the time to submit a piece of artwork.
