Juried art show winners announced

The Binders juried art show at Mint Hill Arts held its reception last Friday.  The gallery packed in a large number of guests for snacks, wine, and the announcement of winners.

“Binder’s is appreciative of the opportunity to be involved with the art show and being able to contribute as well as to participate in the judging of the art show,” said a Binders representative.  “A lot of work was beautiful, technically sound, really compelling artwork.”

Of the 95 entries, eight won prizes.  The judges said numerous pieces came just one or two points away from placing, and the original scoring had tied winners.

Honorable Mention Winners:

Chris Shanahan, “Sorrento, View of Vesuvius”

Susan Verville, “She Crab”

Tim Rinehart, “Red Vase”

James Fales, “Je Suis Desole”

Linda Sacra, “Silver Raku”

Winners:

3rd place – Laura Sussman-Randall, “Fly Away Home”

2nd place – Chris Pariano, “Carlyn”

1st place – Tony Billotto, “Strings Attached”

Best – James Fales “Le Printemp Est Arrive”
