Online Voting will take place from October 13 to October 28. Online votes will carry forward to the Patriotic Expressions Fair Barn Event to be held in Pinehurst, NC on October 29, 2017 and will be added to votes by Fair Barn attendees and the art judge to determine the contest winners.

Each artist will receive one Participating Artist Plus Guest ticket to the Fair Barn event (value $50.00).

As entry is free, the online voting is a key element of the fundraising campaign to support our veterans. Artists will have the ability to easily invite family and friends to vote via email and social media. Voting will require a small donation by each voter and artists are encouraged to promote the event and their artwork.

The prizes to be awarded at the Patriotic Expressions Far Barn Event are as follows:

Painting of the Year


Second Prize


Third Prize


Any artwork that is not sold will either be used in future Stroke of Patriotism events or will be donated to veterans and active military to hang in their homes.
