Trawick Prize Announces 'Best of the Best'


A Baltimore artist was named the "best of the best" by the Bethesda Arts & Entertainment District for her 2007 Trawick Prize winning work in a contest of the 10 award winners to celebrate the event's 10th anniversary. Jo Smail received a $10,000 prize for her work. Washington D.C. resident Mia Feuer won $1,000 and the People's Choice Award for her 2011 Trawick Award winning sculpture work. The People's Choice Award was voted on through Bethesda Magazine. The Trawick Prize, created by philanthropist Carol Trawick in 2003, has awarded more than $200,000 in prize money and served as the centerpiece event for the Bethesda Arts & Entertainment District, a division of the Bethesda Urban Partnership (BUP). The BUP hosts the annual event and displays the finalists in its Gallery B art studio (7700 Wisconsin Ave. Suite E). The work of the 10 winners will be on display through Dec. 1 and a public opening reception will be held this Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. as part of the Bethesda Art Walk. The gallery will be open Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m.
