PORT ORCHARD — Rose Guastella, a Port Orchard artist, has been chosen to have her artwork included in the 2019 CVG Show art competition beginning Jan. 26 in Bremerton.
The art show, one of the largest and most prestigious in the Northwest, will display work by 356 artists from 96 cities and towns in Washington state, selected from more than 1,150 images submitted for consideration.
Guastella submitted her oil painting “Disappearing,” which depicts a view of the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge in Squamish, B.C.
The art show will be open to the public at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, at Bremerton’s Collective Visions Gallery. There will be a special showing on Sunday, Jan. 27 — from noon to 4 p.m. — to view the artwork and to hear discussions about the entries by juror Gary Faigin, from 1-3 p.m.
“The 2019 show has attracted top-quality artists from every quarter of our state to submit their best work,” said exhibition co-chair Alan Newberg. “Some of these artists are well-established professionals and others are emerging talents in the world of art.”
