Sandi and Cynthia and Dave and Niki recently entered the juried show Soaring at the Air Force Museum. Sandi’s painting of young men at war ( photo taken by her father in the war years) was accepted and won a Mayor’s pick prize. Seen here is Sandi receiving her award from a counsellor from Quinte West. Congratulations to you, Sandi. Cynthia had both paintings accepted. Dave and Niki also had paintings juried in. A gala opening, with silent auction, awards, munchies and entertainment in the way of an a cappella singing group, was well attended. The paintings were hung in a wonderful, airy way, suspended from the ceiling on chains in the upper concourse of the museum.
