Awards presented at Adirondack Artists Guild Juried Show
Twenty-fifth juried show at Adirondack Artists Guild
Judged by Valerie Patterson, the show includes 67 works by 50 artists from around the region. Patterson judged from a field of 179 entries.
First Prize was awarded to to Jazen Reuss for her ceramic sculpture “Reclaim.” Second Prize, donated by Guide Boat Realty, went to Mary Woodcock Johnson for “Lake Flower Morning,” an oil painting on panel, and Damon Hartman won Third Prize, given by Gear-to-Go Tandems, for his sugar maple wood sculptured vessel, “Respiration.” All three live in Saranac Lake.
Patterson also chose three works for Honorable Mentions: “Jewelweed and Reflections,” a photograph by James Bullard of Potsdam; “Brewster River Mill,” an oil painting by Steven Cobb of Massena, and Potsdam resident Catherine LaPointe Vollmer’s soft pastel painting, “View from Cascade.”
All the prize winners received elaborate ribbons created once again by Meg Bernstein, who has made them through the years for the show.
The show will run through April 19. Visitors to the gallery may vote once for their favorite piece; the artwork with the most votes will win the People’s Choice award, donated by a local friend of the arts, and presented after the show closes.
