In an October 9 award ceremony at its Art Center in downtown Georgetown, the Georgetown Art Works recognized the best works submitted in its annual statewide, juried call for art. The award for Best in Show–and a $1,000 prize –went to Max Von Nester’s stunning nature study in oil, “Isness”.
First place winners in their respective categories included John Schaeffer’s Sorry We’re Closed, Katherine Robert’s Chronology I, and Dawn Harmer’s The Space Between. Eighteen works in all were awarded prizes.
The art competition was open to any artist 16 years or older residing in Texas. Judges for the independently juried event included Devon Clarkson, B. Shawn Cox, Valerie Chaussonnet, and Lisa Zinna.
