Idaho County Fair –Art Division: The Idaho County Fair, Art Division, reports that Shane Chapman of Cottonwood wins the Best of Show Award for his pencil drawing of “Indian Blanket”. The Idaho Landscape Award went to Ellamae Holes of Grangeville for her watercolor, “On Location”. People’s Choice Award for art work produced during workshops went to Linda Stubbers of Cottonwood for her oil, “Homestead”. There were many blue ribbons for outstanding art pieces. Patty Reid, this year’s judge, frequently looked at each work and said, “Nice and clean; nicely done, very nice detail”. Patty Gehring, a judge’s assistant, further noted that Ms. Reid, also commented on choice of colors used and on good composition. Among other criteria, Ms. Reid looked for accuracy and drama in light source in an art piece. She especially looked for originality in the young artists’ work. Many thanks to all our great community artists, young and older, who participated! Central Idaho Art Association (CIAA) Chairman, Linda Stubbers’, work paid off in spades for a great Art Division! Thanks also to all those of the community who worked to make the Idaho County Fair a success! This writer continues to be impressed by the Idaho community for their outstanding and consistent nurturing of young artists and in growing productive citizens for our future!!
