One of our family members works for our city which enables our family to participate in the National Arts Program. For July and August many wonderful works of art are hanging on the walls of City Hall. There are paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, crocheted pieces, jewelry and more.
I was so pleased to find out at the Awards Ceremony last week that my Kerry Shrug (Pattern published in Crochet! magazine, Spring 2013, www.crochetmagazine.com) won 2nd Prize in the Professional category.
All prize-winners had their artwork shown on the screen and were presented the award by the Mayor, Ted Gatsas.
My daughters did a great job with their artwork as well - one won an Honorable Mention prize and another won a scholarship to the local Art Center.
Here is their artwork:
