Local and out-of-town artists once again exhibited everything from sculpture to oils to handcrafts in an out- door, open-air setting. Those attending, or \v h o attended other exhibits presented during the year, were able to see the level of sophistication to which talent in the area had come. Frances Bass was winner of the top prize. Her oil "Room at the Top' 'was award ed the ?250 Dow Purchase Award. Other prize winners were Doris Munson. Don Hutson. and Dixie McCaieb. Mrs. Munson's oil "Lake Scene." Huston's water color "Gull Watching 1 ' and Mrs. McCaleb's oil "Sky Skape" all were picked by judges for awards. Not only paintings, but crafts as well were exhibited. They ranged from lapidary exlbl- tions to pottery. One of the most popular spots was the "do it your- s e 1 f" stand keyed to youngsters. Children were able to use water colors and could paint an "original" to take home. Pat Baker and Frances Mancuso presented their works in the League's annual two- man show In February.
