For this year’s art exhibit, we asked area artists to contribute works that explore the idea of home, of leaving and returning, or what One Read author Keija Parssinen calls “that mysterious child-love for a left-behind place.” We were absolutely thrilled at the quality and variety of work submitted.
At the exhibit’s opening reception on September 10, the following winners and honorable mentions were announced.
First place: “If Only,” a digital painting by Laura Labieniec Pintel
Second place: “Dark House,” a work in glass by Susan Taylor Glasgow
Third place: “I Still Cry,” a photograph by Marilyn Cummins
Honorable mentions went to:
Tootie Burns for “House Keys” (mixed media)
Rebecca Douglas for “The Road Back” (quilted, collaged fiber)
Rebekah Gates for “3 Phases of Home” (wood, textiles, mixed media)
Kay McCarthy for “Lake Sally Memories” (watercolor)
Dennis Murphy for “The Giant in You” (lighted construction)
The exhibit can be viewed at Orr Street Studios through September 21.
