Winners of the Community Art Show announced!

April 28, 2022

This year’s annual Community Art Show was stunning, inspiring, mind-blowing–ALL the adjectives! We received over 100 entries and the talent was exceptional! Congratulations to all who entered. Your work was viewed by an unprecedented amount of visitors to the gallery. The oohed, they ahhed, they wished every piece was for sale.

While we wish we could award prizes to every entry, we had to allow our panel of judges discretion to narrow it down. Following are the winners of the 2022 exhibit:

Best In Show: At Bay, Conor McGraw

Adult 1st Place: Spearfish Falls, Robert Spomer

Adult 2nd Place: Cross Stitch Weather Patterns, Ann Jenkins

Middle School 1st Place: Fairies and Flowers, Lauren Dagit

Grade School 1st Place: Fading Sunshine, Faith Miles

Our People’s Choice award exceeded 100 votes (unbelievable!) and the competition was fierce. But after counting all the ballots, we have our community favorite. Drum roll, please…

Thank you to all who entered! We hope to see you again next year!
