2017 Annual Art Show

The Sanford Brush & Palette Club’s 53rd Annual Art Show was held October 21st to 28th at the Bob E. Hales Center, 147 McIver Street in Sanford.   This year’s show featured 476 pieces of art work by 61 artists in 16 different categories in the Competition Gallery (plus 463 art pieces in the Sales Gallery). 

The artwork was judged by the team of Pat Scull and Jill Hunt, both talented and distinguished artists.  After many years living and working as an artist in Raleigh, Pat moved to a new home and studio in Chapel Hill where she creates her own imaginary world using clay, paint, wood, metal and found objects.  Jill is a resident artist of the 311 Gallery in the Warehouse District of Raleigh.  She also teaches art full-time in the Wake County School System and serves on the Town of Clayton’s Public Art Advisory Board. 

The SBPC congratulates all those who received recognition in our 2017 Annual Art Show.  A huge amount of thanks to everyone who entered their artwork in the show, to the artists who generously donated their artwork for the raffle and door prizes, to the volunteers who gave their time to stage and run the show, to our sponsors for their support and to our patrons and visitors who came to the show.  Thank you for an amazing year!
