June 6th marked our first ‘Opening Reception’ of 2020. During the reception, the public voted on Peoples’ Choice awards. The winners were ShuShu Clark for her Oil, Sangres Skyline and a tie for 2nd place, Gordon (Shorty) Schockey for his Photo, Jackson Stage Station and Don Vawter, for his Photo, Sunrise Moonset. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all who braved the weather to come out and check out the artwork and vote.
In addition to the People’s Choice winners, door prizes were won by six folks who chose either 2021 Calendars, note cards from Michael Arterburn and a plant from Salty Pine Floral and Boutique. Special thanks to Terri Wiebke and Annie Dawid for ‘manning the store’ from 11 to 5 which allowed us to host a safe and enjoyable Opening Reception.
