CONGRATULATIONS EXHIBITION WINNERS
Red Lodge, Montana- Each year an artist is invited to judge the entries submitted to the Rocky Mountain Regional Juried Exhibition. It is a challenging task to pare down the hundreds of art entries into a cohesive show. This year, we were privileged to have local artist Charles Ringer as the juror. From the 140 pieces entered, Ringer selected 56 amazing pieces for the 2021 Exhibition. And from that group he selected the top pieces for cash awards and honorable mentions.
This year to announce the top winners of the exhibition the Arts Guild held a Zoom event Sunday, March 14. To make the event special Schyler Allyn put together a video of the award announcement and created a video from an interview with the juror, Charles Ringer. The videos can be seen on the Carbon County Arts Guild Facebook page.
