Best of Show: #1 Madonna and Child – Susan Entin
Bold colors and expressive brush strokes capture the sun on mother and baby's faces. In the tradition of artists from The Blue Rider group especially Jawelnsky.
Category 1 Oil & Acrylic
1st place #15 Little Big Man – Isabel Shamitz
Softness of baby's face captured by magnitude of colors carefully blended to create an almost out-of-focus effect. Yet creating some tension with complimentary orange and blue in the clothing.
2nd place #8 Untitled – Sheila Soule
the black outlines of the trees create a stain glass-like effect with a repetitive pattern in between that is reminiscent of the church windows.
3rd place #3 Still Life – Kathy Hunt
skillfully using oils to create an intimate setting for the jewel-like vegetables streaked by the light.
Honorable mention #12 Eitzen Mansion – Bob Weikel
gracefully done, highlighting the fragility of the big house, great use of white that creates a negative-like effect.
Category 2 Water Color
1st place #33 Snowy Valley – Joan Kelley
Low contrast and almost monochromatic palette captures the atmosphere of the snow-drenched, cascading mountains.
Honorable mention #29 The Last Cod – Martha Donovan
Painterly, fluid use of watercolors with a story of man and fish relationship brought to viewers attention.
Category 3 – Pastel and Drawing
1st place #30 Bath Time – Dorothy James
Rich opposite colors used in a painterly fashion give this old bath tub a human body like condition.
Honorable mention #34 Appleton St. – Barbara Saulnier
Alive with gestures and heavy lines, this drawing feels like a street of a small town in Europe.
Category 4 – Mixed Media
1st place #36 Examples of Enameled Metal Objects – Martha Webber
Delicate forms with muted colors and textures make these objects feel they are organically derived from nature, not from metal.
2 place #46 Wonderland – Joanna Drew
Beautiful images carefully composed transforming the setting into magical place
3rd place #39 Untitled – Cheryl Higgins
A mixture of geometry and textures highlighting the structure of the porch against the landscape creates a peaceful stillness in this photo.
Honorable mention #41 Shared Agony – Eileen Ryan
Very shiny and detailed texture of the skin heightens the expression of emotions in this sculpture
