Worcester County Arts Council reveals ‘Small Wonders’ winners

(Nov. 19, 2015) The Worcester County Arts Council announces winners in the juried art exhibit themed “Small Wonders,” which features 46 pieces of artwork submitted by 31 professional or amateur artists, with work in all media.
Although the subject of this show was open to artist’s individual inspiration and interpretation, the main objective was to encourage and challenge artists to become involved in the exciting world of miniature art.
The guidelines required works not to exceed 7 inches for 3-dimensional works and 11 inches for 2-dimensional works. Despite the size limitation, artists submitted works that incorporate a diverse range of materials to communicate this concept. This exhibition combines many mediums including oil, watercolor and acrylic painting, drawing, pastels, photography, mixed media, fiber art, as well as glass and ceramic sculptures.
The winning artwork was selected by an accomplished local artist, Martha Graham. The winners were honored at the opening reception held on Nov. 13 at the Arts Council Gallery in Berlin.
Janet Trimper won first prize for her watercolor painting, “Surfaces.” Mitzi Ash placed second for hand-painted silk “Harmony” and Joan Stockman took third for “Swans,” pen and ink painting.
Honorable mention awards were given to Priscilla Zytkowicz for the photograph of “The Serpent,” Karen Dimaio for “Sight,” colored pencil drawing and Peggy Warfield for her acrylic painting of “Tidal Pool.”
Entries of 25 other artists are also featured in this show. Exhibiting artists include Rachel Alvarez, Dee Brua, Marian Bickerstaff, Brigitte Bowden, Susan Buyer, Cindy Morgan Chambers, Betsy Conlan, Doug Fisher, Jason Giusti, Don Grafer, Barbara Hager, Rudelle Fay Hall, Stasia Heubeck, Robert Johnson, Monika Lilley, Jeri Lipov, Isabel Morris, Toby Jensen Perkins, Charlotte Poore, Nancy Rider, Susan Rosskopf, Marcy Snyder, Joan Smith, Maggie Steimer and May Tignall.
The exhibit will be on display until Dec. 31. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday by chance.
