jill banks: jordan award painter is on the rise

Congratulations to Jill Banks and her "Orange Peeled" which won the Jordan Award for "Best of Show" in the "Small Works" Exhibit at the Art League (Alexandria, VA). That's number 1 out of 532 entries. The awards ceremony will be held at the Art League on Thursday, November 13 around 7pm. The reception runs from 6:30 to 9:30pm. We've been absorbing Banks' choices in color tonality since her recent well-received solo exhibition.

Banks also appears in the December issue of Artist's Magazine -- as she was a finalist in their Annual Art Competition. Just a note: in 2005, Banks won her first Best of Show at the Art League and was a finalist in Artist's Magazine's Annual Art Competition for the first time. This year is her second time winning both of those honors. The Art League is located at 105 North Union Street, Alexandria, VA.
