Top 3 Places

 

Third Place:
Nancy Kremsreiter
“Michael”
It was more than a well-drawn piece. The work was inviting. The markings were compelling and easy to get lost in.

 

Second Place:
David Annis
“Sonja in the Machine”
A compelling piece that I returned to again and again.

 

First Place:
Bobbie Margolis
“The Song of the Roses”
This piece is so well suited for the 12x12 confine; it was well crafted with a wink and a nod to art. I wanted to see more of the artist’s work.
