In an art exhibition that featured 69 pieces in acrylics, oils, watercolors, photography and mixed media, the Vienna Arts Society hosted its âPaint the Townâ reception on Saturday September 10th. on Pleasant Street in Vienna. The artwork reflected the local places in the city of Vienna. Together with four judges from the Advisory Board of the Vienna Society of the Arts, the group awarded prizes for first, second and third place, as well as five honorable mentions.
âIt’s a tradition to focus the show on the city of Vienna and the region; we focus on the city once a year. The theme of it was âPaint the Cityâ, so these are the shops, boutiques and coves around Vienna. There were backyards there; there’s even a photo of the bike shop in town, âsaid Dore Skidmore, president of the Vienna Arts Society, Inc.
The reception included appetizers, wine and cheese and an award ceremony for the winners. Each month, the Vienna Arts Society presents a show on a different theme. The next one in October is called “Bits and Pieces”. The VAS Gallery at 513 Maple Avenue, West, in the Village Green Mall, hosts an art exhibit every two months that features the work of an artist.
Ken Frye, watercolorist, “Vienna Center for the Arts” won first place; second place was Carl Landow, watercolor, “Vienna Store Fronts”; and third place was Deborah Kennedy, photo, “Spokes”. The honorable winners were: Susan Scanlon, watercolor, âVienna Art Center; Margaret Raymond, photo, “Winter in Vienna;” Deborah Schneider, acrylic, âWood; “Kate Purvis Montoya, collage,” Late Bloomer; And Joyce Myers, pastel, “Meadowlark Memory”.
The judges of the Vienna Arts Society Advisory Board were Carey Sienicki, Doug Francis, Jayne Rosandich and Laurel Gainor.
