Floral Fusion Best of Show
Winners of the People’ Choice Awards
2011 Best Floral Design
Friday evening, July 22, a gallery full of people celebrated ” Art in Nature ” viewing an outstanding collection of paintings, photographs and ceramic design, fused by fresh florals arrangements created by local floral designers. Visitors became participants while they chose their favorite Floral Design, 2-Dimensional Art (Paintings and Photographs), and 3- Dimensional Art (Ceramic sculpture). The festive night was accented with a selection of Kentucky Blackberry wines and cheeses.
A quick listing of results follows with photographs of this favorite annual event!
Floral Design Best of Show Award went to Linda Glass for her interpretation of Brenda Fogle’s “Barn in Sepia”
Janice Gray came in close second with her painterly portrayal of Jack Cochran’s oil painting “Peonies”.
Close competition was seen between the exceptional and sensitive floral designs by Joan McCarthy, an explosion of Red and White flowers to complement Butch Glass’s “Fireworks 1” photograph, Annie Brady’s floral forest for her acrylic bird family “Green Birds in a Row”, and Barbara Strippelhoff’s exotic expression emulating Bruce Frank’s photo art “Metamorphosis”.
2-Dimensional Best of Show for peoples’ choice of painting/photograph was close, however, Annie Brady won first place for her “Green Birds in a Row. Jack Cochran’s oil “Peonies” was second, with numerous votes for his other paintings.
3- Dimensional Best of Show was overwhelmingly won by Annie Brady for her ceramic “Bird Frog” with numerous votes for her other ceramic entries. Carl (Danny) Strippelhoff was only one vote from a tie with Annie, and Joan McCarthy rounded up major votes divided between her diverse ceramic creations.
Floral Fusion 2011 was an outstanding success. Thanks goes to the participants and volunteers who make these exhibits possible.
