And the Awards Go To...

Last night was the Awards and Opening Reception for the Great Falls School of Art Exhibit ... and ever since hanging the show, I've been very glad that I wasn't the one to choose the winners. The exhibit is terrific ... and each piece is award-worthy. 2011 was a year of accomplishment and the evidence is hanging in the gallery. Come see it during Open Hours, Saturdays, noon to 4pm at the Artists' Atelier, 1144 Walker Road, Suite G, Great Falls, VA.

I'll add more photos of the winning entries later today ... after I get some painting time in the studio.
