“The Leap,” the Best of Show by Guy Joy

"The leaping boy leapt right into Best of Show effortlessly,” said exhibition judge John Hewitt. “It has excellent technique and wonderful spirit of a young man leaping into the future he sees as bright. We need kids like that.”

First Place Award to Doug Freie for “At the Beach”

"Freie’s paintings have rhythm and color with strong shapes which are my highest rated principles of design," said Hewitt. "I like the emotional content of the figures and animals showing life and quirky fun. To win a high award, a painting must grab the viewer and make them feel something. Freie’s paintings do that instantly.”
