Arts in Harmony 2009, An Update

The reception and presentation of awards was held yesterday at the Sherburne County Government Center. Again the Arts in Harmony show featured lots of excellent work. Representatives from the State Fair Art competition were there and said all of the work selected for this show met the standard to be included in the State Fair show. I guess I'll submit one of my three images in this show to the State Fair Show since I've failed to get into the State Fair show for 4 or 5 years.

I knew where my images were displayed so I purposely made that the last part of my journey thru the show. I admired the variety of excellent art work. As I approached my work I happened on a photograph with an Award of Excellence ribbon and I jumped when I saw it was mine. I forgot where this one was and was shocked to see the award. The image is from the trip with my brother Ralph to Oregon and is of Haystack Rock on Cannon Beach.

This makes the third year in a row where I have won a cash award which makes me quite pleased especially when you look at the high quality of work submitted.
