An annual competitive art show has opened at the Pump House Center for the Arts.
Pump House president Bev Reiley said this show was larger than usual, with 38 artists who are exhibiting 106 pieces.
This is "The Hills" regional exhibition, welcoming artists in a 75-mile radius. The works include painting, photography, ceramics, glass, and more.
Reiley says you can pick up one for yourself, since most are for sale.
Patrick Sims' acrylic won best of show. He says the view east from the bridge at Slate Mills was born of a rainy February day, but he captured light and color out of the gloom.
The show is open until October first in Yoctangee Park.
