Awards for Papier Mâché/Mixed Media Artworks

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Rhea Giffin’s “Bobbing for Answers” receives the Opal Brooten Purchase Award as well as a cash prize Juried Art Show Honorarium from Citizens Council for the Arts at this year’s 41st Annual Art on the Green.  The artwork selection is being donated to Borah Elementary School.  It is one of three purchase awards that are donated to public buildings in the community.  Judges are internationally renowned artists Terry Lee and Ken Spiering.  Judy Minter, another Northwest Papier Mâché Artists’ Guild member, received two honorarium cash prizes this year.  One for her mixed-media/papier mâché sculpture “100% Natural” and one for a painting titled “Graffitti.”  Judy is also the recipient of a previous year’s purchase award for a papier mâché wall sculpture that was donated to North Idaho College’s permanent collection.  For more information, visit

Two of my artworks were accepted for the Juried Show at this year’s Art on the Green festival.  Look for them in the three-dimensional section in the juried show tent west of the main stage.
