a Stockade flood of art and sunshine

Robin Rosenthal‘s The Things We Carry won 1st place at today’s 60th Annual Stockade Villagers’ Outdoor Art Show –

  On a day that started with a lovely sunrise, blue skies, and gauzy clouds, you could almost forget that the Stockade had two floods in the past dozen days (see our coverage, starting here).  As art fans had hoped all week,  the 60th Annual Stockade Villagers’ Outdoor Art Show went on as planned, with artists, visitors and volunteers sharing goodwill and relief over the good weather and good art.  Tonight, I want to spotlight the winning art and artists in the Slideshow below.  It is followed by a Gallery of the same photos, which can be clicked on for a larger version and scrolled over for a description.

You’ll find about 100 additional candid photos of the Art Show in our posting “showing off artfully in the Stockade“.  And, lots more at the Art Show’s Facebook page.

As always, many thanks to all those who worked so hard to make this year’s Stockade Outdoor Art Show a success, including Deb and Matt Volks, Connie and Marty Colangelo, Jennifer Wells, Meredith Anker, Zoe Oxley, Stacey, and Brett Lauren-Kennedy, and many more volunteers.
