Debbie was proud to be a part of JordanCon this year and showed over 14 paintings and 41 prints as part of their group annual show. She had to wait 2 years though due to Covid. This year the annual JordanCon show was double in size after a minimal crowd size in 2021. In addition, the Wheel of Time series became a hit TV series. It was nice to be a part of a wonderful Group of people once again.

Debbie Hughes is the winner of the 2020 Chesley Award for her Unpublished color work:

The Raven, the Wolf and the Maiden. 

The Raven, the Wolf and The Maiden

This exhibit was held from March 1st to the end of September 2020. It was originally going to end in May, but due to Covid all public buildings were closed indefinitely. I was actually worried I would perhaps not see my painting again. After the pandemic subsided in NYC, my painting was returned.

You can still check out all works on line at the NAWA website.

"Seasons of Wither" won an honorable Mention at this show. There were a total of 4 awards.

This painting was completed in 2019, it is part of a series of works that Debbie is working on that center on folk tales and myths.

This award was presented on October 24th 2020.
