Great Falls School Exhibition: Awards

More photos will definitely need to come later as I'm off to my opening reception for "Warm Observations" in just a few minutes ... but the Opening Reception for this celebration of learning and art was fantastic!  Lots of supporters for the artists in both the youth and adult categories. Thoughtful comments from award co-juror Cindy Grisdela. Just fun!
