May 2015 Exhibition
In May 2015 VHAA had its final image exhibition of its 2014 - 2015 year. Jurist Richard Scott selected "Big Easy" Blues by Devorah Friedman for the top honor of Best of Show. So impressed was he by her work that he also awarded her First Place at the Honors level for Man from Morocco.
Mr. Scott was impressed not only by the quality of the works he saw, but also with the system that VHAA offers the judge for selecting the winners. To select the Best of Show, Richard turned all First Place winners upside down and examined them from about twenty feet away, explaining that good composition can be seen from any angle. He then gave a short tutorial, noting why he had chosen each work.
Member art work is on display at the La Canada Library through June 5.
