Friday, November 30, 2012
Pictured is the Best-in-Show winner, "Daily Egg Project" by Karen Foster, in which the local potter created one egg per day starting in 1995, signing and dating each egg.

Eureka Springs School of the Arts hosted the Fall Art Show at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks on Nov. 24-25. Participating artists received awards for Best in Show and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in both two- and three-dimensional art.

Local artist/potter Karen Foster received Best-in-Show for her "Daily Egg Project." Starting in 1995, she created one egg per day and signed and dated each egg. When asked to comment, Karen said, "I'm always at a loss for words. Getting an award for something you've worked on for years is so rewarding." She started working in clay during the early 1970s and continues to create magic with her hands.

Artists in two-dimensional art receiving awards include: 1st Place--Jamie Froelich for "The Push;" 2nd Place--Zeek Taylor for "Lulu Luckinbill;" and 3rd Place--Robert Norman for "Bass Transport" ink on paper.

Three-dimensional awards include: 1st Place--David Zimmerman for "Blue People Gather;" 2nd Place--Frank Egan for "Frog Lamp;" and 3rd Place--Lorna Trigg for her leaf pitcher.

Dylan Castleman, an artist and art educator at Crystal Bridges, served as judge for the event.

ESSA thanks all of the artists who participated in the Fall Art Show and the public who came and shopped.
