The Opera in Art Competition Awards Ceremony and VIP Reception

Opera Naples is sponsoring an art competition in partnership with the Naples Art Association for their adult students and students in Collier County high schools to create original works of art in any medium that feature an opera-related subject. The competition will be evaluated by a blue ribbon panel of judges and the finalists’ works will be displayed in the Frederick O. Watson Gallery of the Naples Art Association. The competition winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony and VIP reception at the Naples Art Association on the evening of Friday, February 15, 2019. The Champagne reception will be accompanied by hors d’oeuvres created by a chef of the Chaine des Rotisseurs gourmet food and wine society. The artworks will be on public display at the Naples Art Association for two weeks from February 16 to March 3, 2019.
