Awards - Photography

First Place 
“Electric Lights Carry the Night” by Jackson Haley
Judges comments:  “The bold composition is immediate in this piece which is both narrative and abstract. Very sophisticated, layered imagery create an emotionally charged image .... the use of headlights to create the energetic lines was very creative ... this becomes a compelling abstraction and I like the contrast between the yellows and blues.”

Second Place
“Reflection” by Hannah Kemmett
Judges comments:  “Great composition, nice study of different materials.”

Awards - Painting

First Place & Best in Show
“My Bedside Table” by Amy Vidaic
Judges comments:  “The rendering of this still life is masterful. The artist successfully represents difficult objects is no small feat and shows a high level of skill .... excellent attention to detail. Strong highlights and shadows help to display the texture and reflective quality of the objects ... stunning rendering of materials and nice composition.”

Second Place
“Dark Clown” by Olivia Tagliente
Judges comments:  “Striking images, makes me smile...feels strong like your own very personal style, almost a poster image or CD jacket.”

Honorable Mention
“Self Portrait” by Erin O’Leary 
Judges comments:  “Quirky, fun image. I like the unconventional lighting and angle. Keep this spirit going in your work and continue to work on brush handling and you’ll really grow!”

Awards - Drawing & Pastel

First Place
“Cola Reflections” by Caroline O’Connor
Judges comments:  “Reflections on the glass surfaces are very impressive ... the artist worked the medium to create a surface texture which is both traditional and contemporary. It transforms these everyday objects into something far more ... nice free marks and good rendering of reflections and different materials”

Second Place
“Hurt” Johnny Cash by Anthony Amatucci
Judges comments:  “Portraiture is probably the single most challenging task an artist faces. Not only is the physical likeness important, but the inner eye of the artists must convey the personality of the model.  Through the eyes and facial features this young artist displays an insight and sensitivity far beyond his years ... Shows an impressive use of highlights and shadows and almost creates a feeling of solitude as if the figure in the drawing holds a secret from the view.”

Third Place
“Reflection of Beauty” by Sophie Rogerson
Judges comments:  “Nice composition. Great coloring and shadowing in the skin tones”

Honorable Mention
“Scratchboard Tiger” by Justin Mattinson
Judges comments:  “Great handling of medium, love the perspective.”

Second Place
“Lemon Observation” by Laura Martynowski
Judges comments:  “Nice tonal work and a real brushwork feel.”
Third Place (tie)
“The House Cat” by Courtney MacFadgen 
Judges comments:  “Great character and beautiful ink-like marks ...this imaginative artist blended a wonderful fuzzy cat into a slick modern memorable design.”
