                                                                                                                                                                                          Due to the limited number of Quick Paint Awards (8 total, two of which are Purchase Awards), artists will only be allowed to win one Purchase Award. Artists can complete as many paintings at a Quick Paint as they can, but there must be two artists to win at each Quick Paint. Saint Charles Riverfront Arts will have a total of 22 awards including all Quick Paints and Category awards. Pieces that win a Quick Paint cannot be entered into the Category Awards.                      The only way one piece may win two awards is if the Peoples' Choice happens to also win an award.
