GALA PREVIEW RECEPTION and Sale: March 3, 2016, 5-7 pm
Congratulations to all the wonderful painters who entered the show and all the great helpers who transformed the hangar at the PS Air Museum into another great event for CVWS. Here are the 2016 winners:
This year there were a number of new innovations. Once again we were in the Palm Springs Air Museum, but this year in the Craven hanger and not the Pond as previously advertised. This gave us lots of space, so each member was invited to submit up to THREE paintings for judging and sale as well as ten bin paintings. This year we also invited artists to enter our Open category as well as the Traditional. Whereas the Traditional requires paintings that are matted and framed, the Open category allows for wrapped canvasses and cradled painting panels.
The show was judged by Stan Goudey AMS. He expressed admiration for the high quality of the paintings he judged and said his decisions were on based personal choice.
The Opening Night Gala Reception was a new feature for the show and was a terrific way to celebrate all the good art and the hard work of the show committee.
Thanks to all for a great effort.
Show Chairs Ian Cooke, Traci Davis
