ARTIST OF THE YEAR
The show print began in 1984 to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the show. It began as a black and white print and a limited number of signed and numbered prints were given out to show visitors each year. Beginning with the 2000 print, they are in full color and have become much sought after. Prints are now given to all visitors of the show both days and the Preview Night Gala.
The exhibitor selected to create the show print is the show’s Artist of the Year. For 2017, the exhibitor is Grover Canwell of Salisbury, MD.
The show print is sponsored by W. F. Booth, Inc. of Kilmarnock. The original paintings are given to the White Stone Volunteer Fire Department and hang in their firehouse during the year.
