Artists Amanda Baillargeon, Sarah Baker (left), Erica Morocco and Shannon Meers had a wonderful time at the Voice!9 Art Show which was held on July 12th at the Martin-Mullen Art Gallery at SUNY College in Oneonta. Sponsored by The Arc Otsego, the artists enjoyed a reception and appreciated the accolades for their beautiful work. Amanda and Shannon both were honored during the awards ceremony.
Amanda Baillargeon (right) won 1st place for her painting “The Wait” and received a $300 prize! The painting sold during the opening reception for $125. In addition to the praise offered to her during the awards ceremony, one of the jurors spoke to her afterward about how impressed he was with her work. She was featured in the Daily Gazette and the New York Nonprofit News.
Shannon Meers (left) was extremely pleased to have her painting “Old Truck in a Field” selected as the cover image for the Voice!9 publicity! She was thrilled to have been chosen for this honor as her image was used on the show postcard, poster and was enlarged onto a very large banner, which hung inside the gallery alongside her original painting.
Voice!9 ran until August 2.
