Winner Announced for 2020 Keyport GardenWalk Art Contest

After much deliberation, the judges have selected Waiting in the Wings II, the exquisite encaustic mixed media piece by Chelsea Villegas pictured at right, to be the face of Keyport GardenWalk 2020. The winning artwork will be reproduced and used for Keyport GardenWalk marketing, advertising, and merchandise. 


The KGW Art Contest Committee gratefully received 22 beautiful, inspiring entries, making this another extremely difficult year for the judges. Waiting in the Wings II and 11 other runners up will be featured in notecards, which will be offered at the Keyport GardenWalk merchandise table in the waterfront gazebo. 


The Keyport Garden Club, sponsors of Keyport GardenWalk, deeply appreciate the artists who share their talent each year as part of the Keyport Garden Walk Art Contest.
