Over 100 artists submitted 275 pieces of their work. 81 pieces of artwork were juried into the exhibit by Atlanta's own Alan Avery and 7 pieces were chosen to receive awards. Opening night was spectacular from all accounts. There was a large enthusiastic crowd of artists and guests at the Spruill Gallery viewing all the beautiful work and listening to the process by which juror Alan Avery chooses work for an exhibit.
We have included photos of visitors, winners and the team of people who put this exhibit together. We will be hosting our next regional exhibit in 2018.
