Gail Radice won first prize and an honorable mention for her oil paintings. In the acrylic category, Peggy Halter won second place and Trula LaCalle was awarded two honorable mentions. Susan Berg won first and Kathy Byrne second place ribbons for their watercolors. In pastels, Phil Wilkinson won second prize and Valerie Koppala Gardiner took home third prize and an honorable mention. Wilkinson also made an impressive showing in photography, with second place and honorable mention awards.
