Portes artists win New England Art Awards

Two artists featured in Portes had big wins at the New England Art Awards. Tim Clorius was both the Critic's and People's Choice in painting for his recent show at Aucocisco, and Lauren Fensterstock was the Critic's and People's Choice for solo shows at Aucoscisco and the Ogunquit Museum of Art. Congratulations!

Here is the painting that Tim made especially for Portes titled "Wishful Thinking" which "reflects on the ocean, so important to the people of Greece and Maine, and its fragility. The sea is a resource we can tap into, but we have to protect it and invest in it as well, since we can't just replace and fix damaged parts, as depicted here".
