ART LEAGUE OF DAYTONA BEACH – MEMBERS’ EXHIBIT – JANUARY 2017 

BEST IN SHOW  #109, Katty Smith – “The House That Made Me”

            The judge noted that this sculpture possesses a strong energy.  He also appreciated that there was a wonderful story to be told behind it, and that the well-chosen colors work beautifully with the piece.

FIRST PLACE  #5, Lillian Verkins  - “Love Potion Going Down”

             The judge stated that this work had energy and a great deal of color with a lot of contrast, giving the work great depth.  The balance of color flows nicely and entertains the eye.

SECOND PLACE   #59, Barbara Perrotti – “Girl in the Garden”

            The judge remarked that he felt he could walk right into this comfortable scene, and could see the painting hanging in his house.  He appreciated that the artist downplayed the image of the figure while playing up the rest of the painting.  The negative spaces are beautifully handled.

THIRD PLACE  #73, Marta Crawford – “Affliction”

            The judge noted that the high skill level and talent of this artist come together, along with a great deal of work and attention to detail, in this sensitive portrait. Sponsored by Joan Jacobsen in Memory of Elizabeth Jacobsen

DISTINCTION   #1, Keri Ippolito – “Rough Water”

            The judge was drawn to the layering of colors as they go off into the distance.  Great dimension and strong color lead the viewer to the horizon line, and the overall look is fresh and clean.

DISTINCTION  #104, Lee Nesler – “Port Clyde”

            The judge stated that the artist has devoted a great deal of time and skill in creating an image to which we can all relate.  The piece has strong contrast, a wonderful feeling, and a lot of interesting detail.

DISTINCTION  #36, Ken Anderson – “Ormond Loop Storm”

            The judge felt that the artist used strong contrast and beautiful color to tell the story of the lights and darks of the landscape during a storm.  The painting has great impact.
