A MILLION THANKS for the wonderful help from Ginny Sparlin and Iris Luckel who helped with our art show in so many ways!
There were five (5) Teachers who submitted 28 beautiful art pieces to 13 categories. There were twelve (12) Student/Members who submitted their 40 special pieces to 14 categories. The entries were all especially beautiful and an interesting variety.
We had a sixteenth category, "My favorite Piece", added at the last minute. This piece did not have to be finished in the past year - just be a favorite piece.

This year we had a separate ballot for Guests to vote for Category 16 in each of the Art Shows. The votes were for Noreen Goetz and Marilyn Corners in the Teacher's Show and Sue Hoover for the Student/Member Art Show.
Thank you Verlene Siska and Iris Luckel for finding Blossoms at Heather Gardens for our luncheon and art show! We had more room for displaying our art work. Everyone who brought entries made the Art show possible and I THANK YOU ALL! We'd love to have more teachers and student/member entries in each of the categories next year!
If you have any suggestions for next year to make displaying and voting easier, PLEASE do not hesitate to let me know so we may make appropriate changes by January. We may eliminate the categories that had no entries unless you wish to keep or add a category.
With my greatest appreciation to ALL of You, Elissa McAlear, Art Show Chair
