The competition judging took place at the gallery Fri afternoon with a total 12 qualifying entries in the running. Our panel of three judges viewed, studied and debated each one taking in all the paintings had to offer. Coming down to the final four, the judges then set themselves to the task of deciding order of placement. With Gallery owner Frieda Linke standing by to answer any questions about rules of criteria for the competition, our judges made their selections. Here are the results!
