Challenge Accepted!

Our members are just so creative and innovative. They took one piece of paper and “ran with it”, making all sorts of fabulous works of art.

And the winners were: Barbara Cathey 1st Place with her Bird sculpture, Carole Foster 2nd Place with her Spirit Box, and Robin Evans with her Bird collage.

It was extremely hard for Francesca and Leslie to narrow it down to a single winner so we had to pick three. Good thing miss Francesca had extra prizes on hand.

Second Place: Vicky Lennon for her vibrant abstract painting “Harborside Celebration”
Third place: Wendy Sullivan for her whimsical assemblage clock “Circus Time”
Although we had a light turnout for the Sunshine, Sparkles and Celebration opening, we had a good time chatting and visiting with one another. If you haven’t seen it, the Orange Park Library has a very nice intimate gallery space with plenty of natural light, take a drive over there and check out the exhibit when you get a chance! It’s up until August 29th. 
If you’re sorry that you didn’t take the time to support your fellow artists at this opening event, then I encourage you to mark your calendars for the SoMMA Award Winners show opening, Thursday July 28th from 7pm at Vicars Landing Retirement Community. This promises to be a lovely event with live music and refreshments!
