Today, the art of Seattle's Jack Daws (most recent work) is declared officially "original, exceptional, and compelling" by the Betty Bowen Award committee, which annually gives a Northwest artist $15,000 in unrestricted funds.

Two artists also win $2,500 each in Special Recognition Awards, and this year those are Eirik Johnson of Seattle (one of my favorite of his photographs) and Lou Watson of Portland.
