NSS 2011 Salon Winners are Now Online
The 2011 NSS art & music salons entries and winners have finally been posted online after their exhibition this past July during the NSS convention in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, where the awards were unveiled.
The NSS Salons promote and recognize cave-related art, artists, and musicians. Submissions are open to everyone, whether you are a member of the NSS or not.
Congratulations to everyone who entered. The results are fantastic.
