show) the well-known local painter and teacher said: “You have to

Kwasinski’s choice for Best of Show went to Denver artist Sheri
Farabaugh’s luminous oil seascape “The Force and the Flow VI,”
which captures the constantly moving foam, swirls and color at the
ocean’s edges. This skilled painter also won Best of Show in 2009
with her “Woman from Wuzhen.”
“The Posers,” Deb Kaylor’s appealing portrait of three shaggy
Churro sheep, won first place in oils. Other winners for oil
paintings: Jam Wong, Karen Scharer, Sarah Phipen, Vivienne Douglas,
Tracy Wall, Tricia Bass.
Watercolorist Chuck Danford of Littleton’s “Down to Earth” won
the blue ribbon for Water Media. His subtly-colored painting
depicts pigeons and starlings feeding on a paved surface, their
shadows creating a clear pattern. Other winners in water media:
Susan Hinton, Peggy Morgan Stenmark, Carol Schinkel, Sydney Eitel,
Molly Squibb, Susan Bartlett and Lorraine Watry.
Irene Resnick’s pastel, “The French Bulldog,” shows a hopeful
pair of pups — “you have a treat for me?” Resnick is from
Littleton. Cherri Lamarr also won a ribbon for her pastel.
“Gate Keeper,” a cowboy leaning on a gate, won a first in Mixed
Media for Elizabeth Wonnacott of Wheatridge. Dina Martin and Ann
Hanscom also won ribbons in this category.
Sculptor Robert Fletcher, Arvada, won first place in Sculpture
for his graceful leaping figure, “Flight.” Andrew Sweet’s abstract
“Joint Custody” also placed.
The Fine Arts Commission is excited about the new Lone Tree Art
Center, which should be open in time to host this exhibit in 2011.
