Everyone’s A Winner At The 55th Annual Art Show

Our Welcome To Sanford Artist of the Week column completes our 2-week visit to the Sanford Brush & Palette Club’s 55th Annual Art Show, which concluded to rave reviews this past weekend.  With exhibits and awards in a wide-range of categories, including Abstracts, Landscapes, Seascapes, Still Life, Floral and Nature, as well as Plein Air, Structural, 3-Dimensional, Collage and Clay Art, there was truly a lot of types of art to see and enjoy. Sanford resident Mickey Pace (seen here with SBPC President Everett Cox) was the recipient of Best In Show, for her clay art piece called Mother Nature III.
