COFA juried art show a big success

The winners of this year's Community of Fine Arts Juried Art Show at Porter Library.

The Westshore Arts Council’s Community of Fine Arts (COFA) Juried Art Show closed with a reception on Saturday, Aug. 26, after a month-long exhibition. 

The 100-plus attendees enjoyed refreshments and finger food prior to the presentation of the awards. This was the 22nd annual COFA Art Show for the arts council and the second year back since the pandemic. 

With 42 artists representing 98 pieces of art, this year’s show was bigger and better than ever. Awards were presented for first and second place and honorable mention in all categories and two divisions.

There were some outstanding pieces in this show with a lot of thought-provoking variety.

The Westshore Arts Council would like to thank the artists who entered the show, the area businesses who supported the show, and the Board members without whose help the show would not have happened. 

If you missed this year’s show, you mark your calendar for next year’s show in August at Westlake Porter Public Library.
