94th Annual Spring Fine Art & Photography Show Wrap-up

Our 94th Annual Spring show was a great success. We had several photos, paintings, drawings, & sculptures created by area artists. Our judge for the adult artwork divisions was Gary Broome. Amy Dumas judged the photography, and Celia Bass & Carol Morton judged the youth artworks. Celene Terry won Best of Show with her painting, "My Brownie Jr and Dad's 8mm." Bobby Strader took Best of Photography honors with his photo, "Sunrise from the Rialto." On the final day of the show, we tallied the votes for People's Choice in artwork and photography. Ryan Richey won People's Choice for his painting entitled "Barn Light." Sandra J. La Vigne (not pictured) won People's Choice for photography with her photo, "Crape Myrtle Trail."

We would like to thank all those who showed their work in this year's show, as well as all of our art club members who pitched in with their time & effort to make sure things went smoothly. And we extend a very special note of appreciation to our corporate sponsors - Jerry's Artarama, Blick Art Materials, & Golden Artist Colors - for their generous prizes for some of our lucky entrants.
