People’s Choice winners announced

By Page H. Gifford

After nearly a month of voting, the public’s choices for the winners in the annual People’s Choice Awards Show were announced on Saturday, Nov. 25. 

A total of 40 members of the Fluvanna Art Association participated in what William Snow said was “one of the best shows,” he’d seen. Participants included artists working in a variety of mediums from wood, to paint, mixed media, pen and ink, to pastel.

Out of 201 ballots cast, all the winners tied except for first place. Taking first place for his watercolor Through The Gap was seasoned pro William Snow. Snow’s broken down and weathered buckboard speaks of a curious history among the rugged rocks surrounding it like monoliths.

Tying for second place was Jeff Bland’s The Advent and Susan Edginton’s Can You Come Out and Play. Edginton captures in flawless detail in pen and ink the yearning of a dog, peeking out beneath the fence to be free and play. Bland’s stained wood fencing as a canvas with winter trees painted on it was mesmerizing and unique.

Tying for third was Linda Bethke for her sweeping abstract seascape Reimagined and newcomer and painter Lisa Daniel for her fun-loving cows with personality in Moo.

Receiving honorable mentions were newcomers Michael Morris for the Old Cunningham Store and Dennis Meyer for Treebird. Morris’s piece is nostalgic, depicting the famous landmark with the faded Crown Cola sign, sitting silent, in memory of the past. Meyer’s Treebird is an intricately carved abstract bird. Meyer’s winding and flowing manipulation of wood had many onlookers intrigued.
