Featured Artists

The primary aim of this exhibition and web site is to promote a better understanding of epilepsy and art, rather than as a "contest."  However, a few awards were presented in appreciation for the time and insights from the artists. Information on future exhibitions and awards is available on request.

FEATURED ARTISTS: Twenty were selected by an independent jury as "Featured Artists" in 2009. Another twelve "Featured Artists" will be selected in subsequent years.

PURCHASE AWARDS: Four talented artists received purchase awards of $1,000 in 2009.  The Purchase Awards are for artworks that are likely to go on tour and become part of permanent collections.
