Saturday, Sept. 24th our "Pets" art show winners were pinned. We were so happy to have a community member, Megan Madge, enter her amazing oil painting of her dog, Ranger, and beyond excited when it won FIRST PLACE! Congratulations, Megan, you are *extremely* talented and we wish you only the best in your future. BEST OF SHOW went to our own 1st VP, Lori Alarcon, for a print of her original painting of the regal Queen Scarlet. Congrats to you, too, Lori! And to all our winners and entrants! To see the rest of the winners, go to https://www.coronaartassociation.org/current-art-exhibit-winners
To see the rest of the entries, come on by the Gallery when we are open from now until mid-November!
