To welcome the spring
CORNWALL â€” Stepping into Lady Audreyâ€™s was a seasonal assault on all the senses, an invigorating experience that matched the beautiful spring weather outside the West Cornwall gallery.
Pizza and champagne were served, bagpiper John Marcus (husband of exhibitor Claire Marcus) surprised with entertainment and a steady stream of visitors attended a reception for â€œSpring Feverâ€ on April 2.
The juried show did not disappoint in either representing the theme, or in the quality and variety of work, from photographs to oils, quilting and woodworking, presented by 13 artists.
Best in Show, Merrill French, â€œEarly Spring Evening in Nantucket,â€ oil on linen
Second place, Carol Gleason, â€œCrocus,â€ colored pencils
Third place, Susan Cane, â€œWhirlwind of Blossoms,â€ pieced quilt
Awards of merit went to Susannah Swanson, â€œSeasons Quadrille,â€ oils on canvas; Mary Anne Carley, â€œSpring,â€ watercolor; Carl Schumann, â€œJose Reyes 2 Hour Came,â€ digital photograph.
Judges were sculptor Christopher Stone of Ibixa, Spain, and David Newton of Silvermine Guild in New Canaan.
