The plein air Paint Out event held on June 19th in the Aspen Grove Shopping Center narrowly escaped the expected rain showers for that day. Artists were given two and a half hours to complete their painting of some aspect of the Center surroundings. This year there were 17 local artists who participated. The juried event moved into ROX Arts Gallery for the awards ceremony. Congratulations to all of our artists! Our expert juror, Victoria Kwasinski, selected the top 3 paintings from the day and they were each awarded a cash prize!
Best of Show – “Wild Fire”, Scott Moody, Acrylic
1st Place – “Home on the Range”, Randall Akers, Oil
2nd Place – “Flowers”, Jeannie Gebhart, Acrylic
Thanks again to all who participated in this event sponsored by ROX Arts Gallery and Aspen Grove.
