The Trawick Prize: Bethesda Contemporary Art Awards is a visual art prize produced by the Bethesda Arts & Entertainment District through the amazing generosity of Mrs. Carol Trawick. The prize honors artists from Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia. 
A couple of nights ago, the annual juried competition awarded $14,000 in prize monies to selected artists and features the work of the finalists in a group exhibition.
Best in Show, $10,000 - Lillian Bayley Hoover, Baltimore, MD
2nd Place, $2,000 - David D'Orio, Mt. Rainier, MD
3rd Place, $1,000 - Dean Kessmann, Washington, D.C.
Young Artist Award, $1,000 - Hannah Walsh, Richmond, VA 
Can I pick them or what? I think this is now 4 out of the last five years that I've predicted the top prizewinner! That's Carol Trawick in the photo with the 2012 Best in Show winner Lillian Bayley Hoover and Catherine Leggett.

Congrats to all the prizewinners!
The 2012 exhibition will run through September 29 at Gallery B, located at 7700 Wisconsin Ave., Suite E, Bethesda, MD 20814.
