2018 Annual Art Show

The Sanford Brush & Palette Club’s  54th Annual Art Show was held October 20th to 27th at the Bob E. Hales Center, 147 McIver Street in Sanford.   This year’s show featured 487 pieces of art work by 66 artists in 17 different categories in the Competition Gallery (plus 568 art pieces in the Sales Gallery). 

The artwork was judged by the team of Angela Lombardi Zappala and Kelly Sheppard Murray, both exhibiting artists at Artspace in Raleigh.  While maintaining a thriving art practice, Murray teaches 2D & 3D design, painting, sculpture and art appreciation at Wake Technical Community College and Lombardi is the Coordinator of Teen, College and Studio Programs at the North Carolina Museum of Art.  They had a fabulous time judging the SBPC Art Show and very much enjoyed the wide variety of styles and media.

The SBPC thanks all of the artists who entered the show and congratulates those who received recognition.  To our members, patrons and sponsors who contributed funds, food, beverages, flowers, candy, coupons, door prizes, publicity, printing and so much more to the success of our Annual Art Show, we thank you for your generous spirit and continuing support.  We could not have done it without you! ♥
