Kawanishi City Art Association Award
This year will be the 31st time the exhibition will be held. Artworks are solicited from both inside and outside the city, and the winning works are exhibited. This year, 256 works were collected from the seven categories of Western painting, Japanese painting, calligraphy, sculpture/three-dimensional modeling, crafts, photography, and contemporary art. Of these, 193 works were selected, and from among the winning works, a total of 21 works from 1st to 3rd place in each category and 43 works for the Encouragement Prize were selected. In addition, a special prize will be selected from seven works with one seat in each category. The judges who were in charge of the selection exchanged opinions on the technical ability and
expressiveness of each work, and decided on three works.
The Aoki Prize went to the calligraphy category for “Ryu Chōkei Poetry” (Wada Soka, age 74), and the Hiramichi Prize went to the Japanese painting category for “Miyuki no Miyama.” Settsunomiya” (Fumio Masuda, 78 years old), and “Rope” (Tsutomu Miyoshi, 76 years old) was selected from the photography category for the Kawanishi City Art Association Award.
