Wynn Newhouse Awards Exhibition Opens at Lubin House
April 21, 2016
Now open in the Palitz Gallery is the Wynn Newhouse Awards Exhibition which runs through May 14th. The exhibition was created to draw attention to the achievements of artists of excellence who happen to have disabilities and is now in its ninth year.
Artists selected as award recipients this year include Derrick Alexis Coard, Courttney Cooper, Nick Dupree, Carolyn Lieba Francois-Lazard, Dan Miller, Alice Sheppard and Constantina Zavitsanos.
