One of the largest and most prestigious art awards in the state of Washington, the Neddy Awards provide cash prizes to outstanding artists living in the Puget Sound region. This year's top prizes were awarded to Tacoma-based artist and educator Christopher Paul Jordan and musician, filmmaker, and photographer Che Sehyun. Runners-up include Barbara Sternberger, Gillian Theobald, Tuan Nguyen, Gretchen Bennett, Marita Dingus, and Dakota Gearhart. The Neddy Artist Awards Exhibition at studio e is a great way to familiarize yourself with the work of all eight of these distinguished locals.
