Since 2006, the KILGOUR PRIZE has encouraged innovation within portrait and figurative painting. In 2020, the prize is in its tenth year. The KILGOUR PRIZE 2020 awards $50,000 for the most outstanding work of art, and a People’s Choice of $5,000 to the painting voted most popular by the general public. Local artist and art teacher Michael Bell won the prestigious 2020 prize with a whimsical double self-portrait.
