VAA Members Win Awards at the Heyde Spring Art Show 2021

April 22, 2021

 
Holly Meier Award - Honorable Mention: Ruth Lundblad - Birch Is Stand. Ruth was able to use the color, light and texture to add great depth to this piece. The contrasts make the viewer want to wonder into the woods to see what was behind the birch trees
.
Beryl Quimette Award: Tammy Ford - Energy. The energy grabs your attention and pulls you into the canvas! The use of color and layers continues to draw you deeper into the piece as you try to determine the meaning of the power with each additional layer your eyes discover.

Hugh Mandelert Award - Honorable Mention - Karen Clark -  Spirt of the Hawk This technique truly takes photography to the next level. Karen provides the base for the viewer's imagination to complete the experience, one may see a butterfly, one may see an orchid. This piece is truly defined by the eye of the beholder.
 
The Heyde Center for the Arts' 57th annual spring art show features 67 artists. Note 23 of those artists are VAA members.  This year's exhibit will run from April 18-30 during the Heyde Center's open hours.
