RPAC’s Gerald King Fine Arts Award will be presented to Corrine Carter, a resident of University Park. She most recently studied at the National Gallery of Art Drawing Salon and the Brentwood Arts Exchange. The award is named in honor of the late Gerald King, a longtime resident of Riverdale Park. RPAC annually selects an art student who shows promise in realism. Winners receive a $500 grant for art supplies and a one-year study apprenticeship under master artist Bruce I. Campbell at King’s studio in Riverdale Park.

Bid in a silent auction for an original painting by the 2016 awardee Ana Vazquez, an art major at Prince George's Community College.

Everyone is invited! Bring the entire family for the fun, food and festivities. Get a free ArtsFest T-shirt when you make a purchase from a participating vendor (while supplies last).
