Edward Beyer awarded Best of Show in BAYarts exhibition

"Early Morning," a black pastel piece by Edward Beyer, was this year's Best of Show winner in BAYarts' juried exhibition.

BAYarts held their 52nd Annual Juried Exhibition this year. Edward Beyer won the Best of Show award for his black pastel piece, "Early Morning." First place was awarded to Jessica Ramage for her ceramic piece, "Fun & Frills." Second place went to Glenn Morisue with an oil painting titled "Real Housewives of Conneaut." In third place was "The Boat Launch," a photographic piece by Jackson Koch.

Four jury awards were also given out, to Susanne Dotson ("Rte 301 at Homerville," acrylic), Patricia Hannahan Sigmier ("Winter Solstice," watercolor), Jim Osbourne ("Zach in Black," oil) and Darrelle Anne Centuori ("Even Before We Met, I Knew You Were Out There Somewhere," acrylic and ink). 

The judges for the exhibition were Christy Gray and John R. Nativio. Thirty-two pieces of art were selected from the 160 pieces brought in for submission. Gallery Director Eileen Stockdale relayed that it took over three hours for the judges to finish their job. A full range of mediums were represented – from ceramics to photography. "There's a nice variety," she added.
