She has promoted the talent of the individuals, pursuing opportunities for exhibition with Community Arts Council of Richmond, Richmond Art Gallery and the annual Possabilities art exhibit and sale.
Winners will be announced on May 17 at City Hall. The 18 finalists, spread out over six categories, were chosen from a total of 80 nominations that were reviewed by a selection committee.
