"The 5th Art Expo has a gamut of fun professionals who regularly show and new secret people who have never shown in their lives," Jurist Barbara Albin said.
Applicants submitted a digital representation of their work-all work being original to the artist.
"We are excited to have sponsorship from Two Fish Inn and Belle's Secret Spa in the form of raffle baskets," Show Founder Mary Ann Harms said. "Two-Fish Inn's basket features a two-night guest stay and includes everything you need for a lazy day at the pool."
