The Sangres Art Guild hosted its last art show reception for 2020, the Winter Wonders Art Show, on Saturday, December 5th at the 3rd Street Gallery. Guests had two floors to explore and also voted on the People’s Choice Awards. The winners were Daniel Ludvig’s “Star Party Crashers” done with colored pencil and an oil by Terri Wiebke titled “Santa Fe Snow.” Congratulations to the People’s Choice winners!
If you have not had a chance to see the show, it runs Thursday – Monday, 11-4, until December 21 at the 3rd Street Gallery. This show has smaller pieces of art, great for gift giving. SAG also has its 2021 SAG Fine Art Calendar for sale, which makes great gift giving as well.
