The ‘Lake Country’ themed 2014 Juried Show has ended and was our most successful ever.  Many lake country art lovers came in to see the beautiful art work that was displayed during January and February.  Everyone enjoyed the show and took the time to vote for their favorite work of art. 

The votes are now in and it is with pleasure that the Jaques announces that the ‘People’s Choice Award’ has gone to Don Walvatne, of Minneapolis, with his painting of ‘Lake Country Loons’.  This painting was also awarded a First Place ribbon by the Juried Show judge, artist Derek Davis.

Don’s wildlife art has gained notoriety at the Jaques Art Center in Aitkin, taking ‘Best of Show’ award in 2013 with his oil painting of two pileated woodpeckers.

Next Year our Theme for the Annual Juried Show will be 'Wondrous World' so that just about covers anything and everything doesn't it?  So get started on your art! You have until next December to complete it - no excuses!
