The arts board selected Abartis from more than 40 applicants from Stearns, Benton, Wright and Sherburne counties for the award which recognizes outstanding artists in the region who have demonstrated prominent artistic achievement. Submitted to the competition were five fairy tales, retellings of the traditional tales of youth but intended to be read by adults: “Scheherezade Runs Out of Stories,” “Cinderella,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “The Mermaid” and “Red Riding Hood.”
