The Harlow Gallery has announced the award-winning artists for “Art2017,” the 22nd annual juried art show on view at the Harlow Gallery, 160 Water St., through June 24. The gallery's annual juried show is a tradition that draws artists to Hallowell from all over the state.  This year's juror is Corey Daniels, curator and owner of the Corey Daniels Gallery in Wells.

Prizes were awarded at the May 12th opening reception; those selected include two artists from the Midcoast. Best in Show and a $500 cash prize sponsored by The Marketplace at Augusta was awarded to Harrison Walker of Rockport for his mixed media series titled “Portals.” Daniels wrote that encountering this series “is one of the single-most exciting artistic finds in recent memory.”

Among the artists awarded Honorable Mention is Abe Goodale of Camden for his watercolors “Fishing Fog” and “The Islander,” which Corey declared “incredibly well done.”

During the exhibition, visitors are asked to help determine the winners of the People’s Choice Award, which comes with a $100 cash prize sponsored by the Animal Wellness Center of Augusta and will be awarded by popular vote at the end of the exhibition. Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m.
