Jacksonville Center announces People’s Choice Award winners for New Works exhibit
The Jacksonville Center for the Arts is pleased to announce the People’s Choice Award Winners for the 10th Annual New Works Exhibit. Winners were selected by ballots cast by Hayloft Gallery visitor,s and the first-place winner was awarded a prize of $50. Congratulations go to Susan Brittingham, Fred Jones, Ernest Bryant, and Swede McBroom for their winning contributions.
This year began with the New Works exhibit, featuring the latest works by both new and established artists and artisans. All the work for this exhibit had to be made within the past year and never exhibited before, thus, giving the artists an opportunity to share new work with the community.
The winning piece was titled “Mabry Mill,” a quilt by Susan Brittingham. Fred Jones won second place with the painting “Citizens United,” and third place was a tie between Ernest Bryant with “Rifle for Tim” and Swede McBroom with “Meditation Hall Doors.”
Participating artists included Charlotte Lou Atkins, Samuel A’Court Bason, Susan Brittingham, Ernest Bryant, Ron Campbell, Audrey Caywood, Rick Cooley, Lore Deighan, Susan Egbert, Aileen Fletcher, Glenda George, Art Haase, Winter Hart, Don Johnson, Fred Jones, Charlie Knighton, Floyd Bud Lohr, Gina Louthian-Stanley, Cheryl Mackian, Glenda McAlexander, Swede McBroom, Nathan Popp, Dennis Ross, Karen Sewell, Helen Shaw, Sylvester Simard, Kimberly Simmons, Gretchen St. Lawrence, Agnes Stringfellow, Teri Walters, Howard Wenger, and Gerri Young.
“Congratulations and thank you to these talented artists for their contributions,” said Lore Deighan, gallery coordinator.
