Over the years, the Nothern Colorado Artist Association (NCAA) has seen its popular National Art Exhibition & Sale grow from a local event to a prestigious, nationally-acclaimed show — now in its eighth year, the exhibition attracts hundreds of submissions from around the US. Guest juror Mark Thompson, an award-winning egg tempera artist in the tradition of Botticelli, Verrochio and Fra Angelico, whittled down this year's submissions to just 101 artists hailing from 22 states; their work will be on display at the Lincoln Center through late May. In addition to the main exhibition, the show includes work by local students who were selected as this year's NCAA scholarship recipients: Soren Daugaard of Rocky Mountain High School, Jeremy de la Garza of Fort Collins High School, and Leila Singleton of Poudre High School were named this year's high school winners, while Nathan Gates of Colorado State University earned the collegiate honor. These students — along with the main exhibition's 21 prize winners — will be honored in a special ceremony on April 17 at the Lincoln Center, 417 West Magnolia Street. The show will be open to the public through May 21, 1999.
