Renowned Rochester artist Henry Avignon has a growing following, and now he's entered an international contest called Exposure. Avignon is competing with artists from around the world. If he wins Exposure, his work will be exhibited and published internationally.
It all depends on a public vote.

News 8 first told you about Avignon last December. Avignon created the Newtown Collection, in tribute to the victims of the Sandy Hook Shootings. The collection was chosen to hang as a permanent memorial inside the Newtown, CT Town Hall. Another edition of the Newtown Collection is on display at the Corporate Offices of Constellation Brands, in Victor. Chairman Richard Sands and his wife Jennifer are major patrons of Avignon's work.
