Over 80 paintings were critiqued by judges “In Pursuit of Excellence”, the Garibaldi Art Club’s spring show.

Elaine Booth-Kallweit was the big winner, garnering three awards, including best of show for her painting “Wet Alley”, third place for “Beneath the Aspens” and  a honourable mention for “Skiff”.

“The artists certainly strove for excellence, as a high standard of work was evident amongst the many entries in this juried show,” says club member Andrea Walker.

Neil Hamelin was awarded second place for his painting “Whittier Harbour”.  Other honourable mentions: “Bedroom 1”, by Jane Gardner; “Divergence”, by Cindy Johnston; “Spring Glow”, by Shirley Felgner; “Untitled”, by Anthony Davies; and “Waiting For The Ferry”, by Jane Duford Johnston.

In May, members of the Garibaldi Art Club will display and sell their work at the Haney Farmers Market on the first Saturday of the month, as well as throughout summer.
