RCA Announces Penny Redmon Scholarship
The Penny Redmon Scholarship awards a Member Artist (with each exhibition) a $250 credit to use toward any desired Class or Workshop. The award is valid for three years from the date of receipt, and is chosen by popular vote from each Members' Gallery Exhibition, including Currents, the All-Member Exhibition in December.

With each exhibition, voting will open the Wednesday following Exchange Day, and voting will continue until the opening reception for that particular exhibition concludes. Votes will be tallied and the winner will be announced in the week following the opening reception.

The Penny Redmon Scholarship is a gift contributed by Evelyn Atkinson, honoring the late Penny Redmon who passed in early 2010. Redmon was the sister of Michael Atkinson, whose bronze "Man's Best Friend" is on permanent display on RCA grounds.

Evelyn Atkinson, the 1998 Rockport Art Festival Poster Artist, believes in the continual education and recognition of our Member Artists, and RCA is grateful for this lasting contribution to our creative community.
