  • Third place: Sandra Dowie for her oil painting on wood panel, “Sailing.”
  • Honorable mentions: Laurie Kester for her wood and glass assemblage, “Wind Charmer”; Terry Carbone for her oil painting, “Misty Cove.”

A special recognition for use of color and a portable easel were awarded to Ron Throop for his acrylic on hardboard painting, “The Land Developer Improves Land Like Beelzebub Nurtures Puppies.” The easel was donated by AAO member Charlene Davis.

A solo show award was given to Robert Jones, who will have the opportunity to mount a one-artist exhibition of work in the Jo Hyse (first floor) Gallery during the 2014 exhibition season.

As always, exhibits are free and open to the public.
