The San Diego Visual Arts Network, based in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, has teamed up with nonprofit A Ship in the Woods to produce the 2015 San Diego Art Prize, which will be featured at the Art San Diego Contemporary Art Show from Nov. 5 through 8. The Art Prize is a county-wide project that recognizes excellence in visual arts. The award recipients for 2015 include Wendy Maruyama with emerging artist Peter Scheidt, and Roy McMakin with emerging artist Kevin Inman.

This year marks the beginning of the 10th anniversary for the project, which will be celebrated on Nov. 6 during the Moment in Time: SD Art Prize celebration from 6 to 8 p.m. The event will include appetizers and a bar, and will feature the interactive art of visual artist Stefani Byrd. Admission is free to all guests of Art SD, though a donation is encouraged. For more information visit
