    The Best of Show ribbon was awarded to Wilson for her “Mixed Bouquet.”
    Pat Pummill Betteridge won a 1st Place Blue Ribbon for her “Farm Fields”; 2nd Place Ribbon went to Brian Hoover for “Colorful Bounty at Smugglers Notch, Vermont”; and 3rd Place was a painting entitled “A Bubble Day,” by Nancy Mathis.

    Members who attended the reception were also allowed to vote on their favorite entry as the People’s Choice Award, which honored Coleen Latimer for her watercolor art on slate – “Garden of the Beast.”
    The 58 pieces of art created by 18 different member artists will be displayed through June 28, so they will be there for the 3rd Friday Artwalk in the Englewood Arts District, at Winner Road and Sterling Avenue.
    The Independence Art Association has been active in the community since 1951 and was formed to foster and promote the study, research, and diffusion of knowledge of the fine arts. They also have established and maintained the Robert E. Tindall Scholarship Fund, which promotes and aids art students at the area high school level.
