Burgwin-Wright Paint-Out Awards Announced

A four-year veteran of the Burgwin-Wright Paint-Out and a newcomer received the top awards in the annual plein-air painting event.

Ann Lees of Wilmington, who has participated in every Burgwin-Wright Paint-Out since it launched in 2013, received the Poster Image award. Her iconic painting of the orchard, “Sundial Pomegranate Tree,” will represent next year’s Paint-Out on posters and other marketing materials.
