Winners of the Wings Open Art Show Judging

-A A +A

Feb. 4, was a big night for the local art community in Cedar Key as they came together to celebrate all the wonderful creations on display for the Wings Open Art Show.

The big winner of the night the photograph titled: “Wing Preen,” by local nature photographer, Frank Morgan. The photo of a brilliant white Great Egret emerging out of near blackness is stunning. Frank was awarded first place for this photo. He also was awarded an Honorable Mention for another photograph of two “complaining” bluebirds.

Judi Cain was awarded second place for an acrylic painting titled “Roseate Spoonbill.”

The perennial creativity of Mike Leiner took third with “Woodland Wings” sculpture and Bill Dummitt and Ann Kamzelski were also awarded Honorable Mentions with their photography.

Thanks are extended to Wes and Deb Lindberg that traveled in from Gainesville to judge this show. Drawing on their years of experience as artists and college art professors, they did an excellent job in judging the show.

If you missed this open, please stop by during Keyhole Co-op store hours and visit the Upstairs Gallery to see the show for yourself. And we hope you can make time to stroll and explore enchanting Lois Benninghoff’s “Mixed Mediums” show in the Member’s Gallery.

Next month the gallery will feature the ceramics of four well-established artists in the Main Gallery and Lowell Reception Center Inmates’ presenting “Journey Daybooks: From the Inside” in the Member’s Gallery.
