HOSPICE CUP XXXI SELECTS 2013 ARTIST FOR ANNUAL POSTER
Annapolis, MD–Hospice Cup XXXII – America’s largest charity regatta will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2013 on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay.An Artist Reception was held at The Circle Gallery in Annapolis on January 24, 2013. There were 19 entries this year, including three from youth under 15 years old (two of those from students at Central Middle School). Community members selected Ms. Sterner’s painting, Pipe Race. The painting can be viewed at www.hospicecup.org.
When Shannon found out about the Hospice Cup poster competition, she knew she had to enter. The Hospice Cup is such a necessary and wonderful cause, so Sterner decided what she was going to paint and after a few days, she had finished. Shannon won, and is so excited for the Hospice Cup Shore Party after the race where Hospice Cup will raise additional funds at the auction, which will include her painting! Limited addition posters of her artwork will also be for sale.
