Congratulations Alla Prima Westcliffe Winners!

Congratulations to Alla Prima Westcliffe award winners!  The artwork is spectacular; the show is one well-worth seeing.  At the opening reception and award ceremony on October 5, 25 artists entered 57 great artworks, several of which sold before the night was done. Fourteen major awards were earned and 10 artist’s door prizes were drawn at random.  With the additional four door prizes and one painting-of-the-day award given at Friday night’s Wet Wall event the night prior, a total of 29 awards and door prizes were had by the artists.

Good food and wine was generously provided by Westcliffe Wine Mine, Schlabach’s Deli, Sugar N Spice Bakery, Westcliffe Supermarket and Antlers Liquor.  Special thanks to Bridget O. and Angie A. for putting together the reception and keeping all supplied with good cheer.
