The Blaine Arts Council Announces Winners of the Annual World of Plants Art Exhibit

Please join the Arts Council in a reception honoring the winners of the World of Plants Art Exhibit on Tuesday, August 21 at 5:30 pm at Blaine City Hall. 

The show was juried by John Mogren of John Mogren Studios. 


Best of Show Poppies and Ditch Flowers Batik Watercolor) Kathy Weinbeck 

An eye catching piece that immediately caught and held my attention. This piece looks as amazing from a distance as it does from close inspection. A wonderful color scheme which focuses on bright poppies is simply smile inducing. A perfect matt and frame complicate this lovely painting.


1st Place Blue Wasp and Hydrangeas (colored Pencil) Sharyn Erickson 

At a distance this piece has a rather photographic quality. Being an artist who enjoys working with colored pencil medium, I can appreciate this artist’s ability to create an almost watercolor-like effect. The composition of this piece was well executed from background to the finely detailed blue wasp. The rough torn paper is a nice touch, and the frame is very complimentary.


2nd Place Poison (Gouache and Watercolor) Surelle Schewe 

A classy piece with a rather vintage feel to it. A well executed sketch/ watercolor that leaves the viewer curious as to what story the artists is telling. This painting feels like it was an illustration torn from the pages of a romantic story book. Classic black frame completes this beautiful piece of art.


3rd Place Summer Greens (Watercolor) Karen McDermott

A wonderful limited palette of greens and yellows dance from a shadowy background to a foreground to the soft, airy affect of flower and foliage. Perfectly framed and matted to compliment this warm and lovely piece.
