  • Signed, Limited Edition Reproductions of the selected artists’ work will be featured on Columbia Winery displays throughout Washington and Oregon during the holiday season.
  • The selected artists and the runners up will be featured in an exhibition at the beautiful Columbia Winery Gallery in Woodinville, WA from August 1-November 30.  
  • Alan Rose’s original artwork will be featured at CoCA’s 2015 Marathon & Auction (Nov 13-15).
