We have a great group of artists at our summer exhibit--our sixth one since we started twice-yearly shows in 2020. Our cash prizes are awarded for outstanding achievement in various art mediums, one winner in each category. We feel this is a lot more helpful than designating 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so on. We don't want our artists to feel like they've been ranked among their peers--rather, that the winners were excellent in their chosen division. So, here we go--here's the list!
Drawing (includes pastel, ink, graphite, colored pencil): Dee Thornton
Sculpture: Mike Slaski
Painting (includes oil and acrylic): Vivien Fajardo
Watercolor (transparent and opaque): Janet Johnson
Mixed Media: Paige Linback
Ceramics (includes clay): Jeff Finn
Wood: Neil Benham
Photography: Dean Hill
Fiber: Diana Munro
Jewelry: Linda Benham
Best overall: Sandy Williams and Jeff Matejovsky (collaboration)
The People's Choice award will be made at the end of the exhibit run on November 4. If you visit the gallery before then, feel free to vote for your favorite!
