CAE announces winners of the 2016 Adult Competition The Center For Art & Education held a “Call For Entries” August 29th – 30th. This year 68 entries were received from artists throughout the river valley. “We were delighted by the number of entries, the new artists and the scope of work,” said Jane Owen, Executive Director. This year oil and acrylic paintings were the predominant entries but artists also brought glass, fiber and mixed media art, as well as pastels and watercolor. The quality of art is truly remarkable and illustrates the spirit of a hard working community, as many artists are self-taught. Other artists have blossomed under the direction of local instructors and workshops both here and across the nation. The artistic community of the river valley continues to grow and thrive and a local art competition is a true sample of what is going on in the community of up and coming artists.
