2017 Midsummer Arts Dream Results

2017  MIDSUMMER  ARTS  DREAM  RESULTS

The 2017 Midsummer Arts Dream was a great success. This year we had over 70 different pieces of art and over 30 artists contributing. The Friday night opening reception saw approximately 95 people come through the door, view the work, talk to artists, and eat cake. While doing this they were entertained by the “In Performance” professional trio. It was a wonderful reception and lots of folks came by on Saturday and Sunday to view the exhibition as well. A very good turnout indeed.
We have the results from Peoples Choice and they are:
ART - Wilfrido Limvalencia
MIXED MEDIA – Tayt Modern
TEXTILE – Pam Mahoney
PHOTOGRAPHY – Joanne Corcoran
YOUTH – Aileen Yadakoro

We also hired adjudicators to choose first, second and third in each discipline and the awards go to in 1st, 2nd 3rd order:

For the first time there were also a couple of honorable mentions. This happens when the choice between 2nd and 3rd is very, very difficult they are:
ART – Joselitio Macapagal and Wilfredo Lim Valencia
PHOTOGRAPHY – Gail Newell
It deserves to be said that everyone who exhibited their work was a winner just for the willingness to share their work and we thank you!
