The first Charles Movalli Excellence in Painting Gold Medal award was given to Timothy Neill on Sunday, June 25th at the North Shore Arts Association in Gloucester, MA as part of the second summer juried exhibition. The medal shown in the photo is the full-size master, which is a stand-in for the scaled down 4" finished medal which is currently being cast in bronze. The wonderful design was created by sculptor Daniel Altschuler. In addition to the medal, recipients receive a $200 award.
The same award will be given at the Rockport Art Association later in the season, and both awards will be given annually moving forward in the years to come. The Movalli estate is very excited to be able to support the local art community in this way.
