LOCAL ARTIST WINS BIG IN DANVILLE ART SHOW

Studio 107 artist Terry Mitchell recently received the Best In Show award at the Danville Art League’s Annual Juried Exhibit. Co-sponsored by the Danville Art League and the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History located in Danville, Virginia, the Annual Juried Exhibit includes painting, printmaking, drawing, mixed media, photography, pottery and sculpture.

Mitchell, a renowned wood turner working out of Studio 107 Artist Studios for Piedmont Arts in Uptown Martinsville, Virginia, entered the piece, “Wooden Bowl with Spindle”, a turned vessel made of Australian Gimlet burl wood. His work was chosen out of 81 entries for the Best In Show award.

About his win, Mitchell said, "I was very surprised to receive the Best In Show award. It is an honor and I am thankful to the Danville Art league for this award."

Other Studio 107 artists also participated in the Annual Juried Exhibit, including Roland Guidry who won a Scratchboard award for his pen and ink drawing, “Country Road” and Aleen Wilson who received an Honorable Mention for her warm glass piece, “Happy Curves”.

The Annual Juried Exhibit was open to artists from select locales in Virginia and North Carolina. It will be on display in the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History’s Jennings and Schoolfield galleries through December 19, 2010.
