This year’s $1000 prize will be awarded by the Pawtucket Foundation, co-host and sponsor of this highly anticipated exhibition. The $250 PAC prize winner will also be announced. The show at the Mill Gallery includes works in all media by eighty-five artists. At the reception there will be live music by Paul Williams and Michelle Hill and refreshments. All are welcome.
