11th Annual Juried Show- THEME:'LAKE COUNTRY'
January 9 - February 14, 2015
The Eleventh Annual Juried Show is now on display and the Jaques Art Center in Aitkin, Minnesota. This year our theme was 'Lake Country' and how more appropriately to show this than by our First Place Winner, Don Walvatne's 'Lake Country Loons'.
Thirty-eight artists came out in full force this year with 77 beautiful pieces of creative art.
Congratulations to our Best of Show winner, Mary Hendricks with her painting of 'Spring Torrents', Second Place Winner, David Rickert with his painting of 'Livin' on the Lake',and to our Third Place Winner, Tom Dimock with his painting of 'Rough Weather' showing Mille Lacs Lake in a wind-blown state.
This year we added a student category and our winner was Savannah Matheny with a lovely scratch board of a fox 'Hiding in the Grass'. We still have not awarded the People's Choice Award.
That job goes to you, the art-loving public, to COME IN AND VOTE for your favorite before February 14, when the show will come down.
Next Year our Theme for the Annual Juried Show will be 'Wondrous World' so that just about covers anything and everything doesn't it? So get started on your art! You have until next December to complete it - no excuses!
