Art association awards Orange show standouts

Single Step, a mixed media piece by Jami Faith, took Best of Show honors in the Keizer Art Association’s April virtual show.

Faith’s piece depicts a pair of feet, composed of bits of maps, stepping through flower petals (pictured left). 

“The use of a world map for the feet makes the viewer wonder where the walker is and where the feet will go,” judges wrote in awarding the artist.

The show theme was “Orange.”

Marilyn Lindsey took first place in three dimensional art for Bougainvillea Wristlet, a polymer clay bracelet. John DeJarnett was awarded first place in digital art for Orange Expo. Cheryl Manhire took first place in photography for From Cara’s Rose Garden. Spring Awakening by Carol Sims was first in two dimensional art.

The next show, “Celebration of Flowers,” begins May 1. Entries from the current and past shows can be viewed at
