B-W Greenway and the Fairborn Art Association Announce Awards
for the Landscape2018 Juried Art Exhibition.
B-W Greenway and the Fairborn Art Association for the eighth year sponsored a juried art exhibition to heighten public awareness of local green spaces and the need to preserve these assets. Each year, a different location within the greenway is selected for the artists to develop their artwork. The 2018 location was Oakes Quarry Park in Fairborn. The completed artwork showcases the importance of the green space as an asset to our community.
This year, the competition attracted 44 artists and 83 pieces of artwork. The judge for Landscape2018 was Ms. Eva Buttacavoli, Executive Director of the Dayton Visual Arts Center. On July 15, at the opening reception held at the Fairborn Art Association gallery, awards were made to the following artists:
First Place – Carol McNeeley, Dead Tree & Boulder
Second Place – Yuki Hall, For Her Body of Work
Third Place – Brendan Higgins, A Path
Juror’s Choice – Siobhan Fitzgerald, Green Space Shouldn’t Be This Hard to Find
Honorable Mention, Nine artists received ribbons: Kim Ceccerelli, Carol Collette, Billie Dickson, Connie Gifford, Susie King, Jim Little, Kevin McNeeley, Katrina Pierce and Barb Stork
B-W Greenway is greatly appreciative of the partnership with the Fairborn Art Association to sponsor this wonderful competition and show. The pieces of art were displayed in the gallery and were enjoyed by B-W Greenway members and the community.
The Landscape2019 Juried Art Exhibition has selected Garland Wetland Reserve as the subject for the competition. The artists are welcome to begin working immediately. Additional information will be found on the B-W Greenway website soon.
