It was a beautiful day for the ‘Blend of Art’ show, take in some great art, listen to live music, watch an art demo by SAG member Kevin Koch, and vote for your favorite pieces for the People’s Choice awards.

The awards are as follows:

1st Place – “Kestrel”, acrylic, by Danica Lee
2nd Place – “Breath of Color”, oil, by Lauren Dwyer

In addition Juror Gerald Merfeld graced the day by talking about how he judged the show and some insight to art. He stayed and talked with individual artists that wanted to talk with him. A special thanks to him for taking the time. We really enjoyed listening to him!
