This year we had 99 contest entries and we had to whittle it down to 5 winners. Here are the 5 winners for 2022:
Join the Dance
- Peter Watrous
20" x 16", acrylic. As with my other paintings of dancers, I hope to instill in the viewer the feeling, spirit and rhythm of dancing. I constructed this painting using planes of color while defining the figures with black lines.
Teach Me To Breathe
Rockin' song with strong punk alternative roots.
- Charity Buckbee
The idea behind Rustlers Promenade was started after hearing a violinist play a tune at the Troy's Farmer's Market. This is where Charity Buckbee, co-owner of Dirty Sweater Productions LLC, wanted to created a western style short film set to music.
Downtown Schenectady Winter Trolley
- James Ausfeld
Oil on canvass (16x20) from a black and white photograph from 1920.
- Nicholas Peck
"Hey, Rick" is a short story of roughly 2500 words. The aim of this work is to exemplify the ambiguous calm which may be felt and observed by those near to and accepting of their own and other's inevitable deaths.
