This year the show was judged by Cam Davis, an artist and teacher living in Acton. She studied art at Colby College, University of Southern Maine, the New Hampshire Institute of Art, River Tree Arts, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Her artist books, pastels, monotypes and encaustics have been shown in Portland and Saco venues and in Dover, New Hampshire.

First place in the two-dimensional category went to Janet Gill’s pastel, “In the Valley.” Davis commented on the “masterful capture of space and softness of fall colors in a delightful miniature.” Anne Bernard’s mysterious acrylic, “Diver,” received second place and third place went to “Seven Trees” by Molly Mains, a mixed-media creation.

In the three-dimensional category, first place was captured by Don Best’s carved relief “Cat in Chair” because of its “fine craftsmanship which shows a variety of textures while humorously depicting the ownership of a comfy chair.”

“White Rabbit,” a needle-felted sculpture, received second place and was created by Celia Talbot.
