BVAA 2021 Fall Art Show

Winners – Fall Show 2021

Congratulations to all the winners of our Blackstone Valley Art Association Fall Show in 2021! This show was held in our Uxbridge art gallery. Here’s the full walkthrough video of the show:

The judge for this show was artist George Hancin, who teaches at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Worcester Art Museum. Here is his website:

Here are his notes on the winning artwork items:

First Prize – Carol Frieswick / “Low Tide In The Marsh”

This pastel creates a soft atmospheric look which takes you into the distance. There’s a fine interplay between the distant trees and textured foreground.

Second Prize – Beverly Tinklenberg / “Beach Houses”

This is painted in a loose, carefree style which still preserves structure and space. The geometric shapes of the houses work well against the organic shrubs of the middle ground.

Third Prize – Al Weems / “The Traveler”

The photograph creates a gloomy, surreal, ambiguous atmosphere.

Honorable Mention 1 – Steve Paulson / “Butterfly Farm”

A pleasant use of color also creates three-dimensional forms in the silos and barns.

Honorable Mention 2 – Laura O. Cenedella / “Autumn Creek”

This painting is of a shady spot in the woods alternating between dappled light and darker colors; it becomes almost pointillism.
