Winners will be invited to show or sell their art at the NCAC tent at Newtown Arts Festival, this year set for September 16-17 on the grounds of Fairfield Hills.

The funds for the grants are from the proceeds of the two-day Newtown Arts Festival.

Now in its sixth year, the award has gone to a photographer, an artistic printer, a filmmaker, a theater group, and the first year’s winner, Johnny Williams, a sculptural carpenter who went onto become a finalist in the Martha Stewart American Made program.
