On August 15, CRAG (Connecticut River Artisan Group) hosted a People's Choice Exhibition during Pittsburg's Old Home Day Events. By all accounts it was a great success and I was pleased to participate. The above images were award winners with the top image "Curling Cedar", an acrylic painting, winning 2nd and 3rd prizes in the People's Choice category. The image below it, an acrylic painting titled "Keazer's Place" won the judge's Best of Show award.
The judge's award was a new addition this year. Professional artists and gallery owners from around the state, Susan Gradual, Linda Novak and Christopher Hubble were this year's participating judges.
