Six venues participated in the juried "Renewed in Word, Faith and Grace" show, which is part of the Grand Rapids Reformation 500th Anniversary events. The six venues are Trinity Lutheran Church, St. Luke's Lutheran, Christ Lutheran Church, Catholic Information Center, Faith Lutheran and Samaritas Senior Living Center. The art show will be up for viewing until Oct. 31. There were 2 categories, 3D and 2D art. We were honored to have Jon McDonald judge the 2D category for us. He was very excited to see the wonderful works, and had such a difficult time deciding that he requested another category be made for "Honorable Mention." This category will receive an award amount of $25 each.
The award winners in 2D are:
1st Kathleen Kalinowski, "Sunrise over the Winter Fields," Oil, at St. Luke's Lutheran Church
2nd Dave Bazen, "Young Mother in Israel," Oil, at Samaritas Senior Living Center
3rd Candice Chovanic, "The Maid," Oil, at Trinity Lutheran Church
