Hot and Cold is the theme for the February exhibit at the Studio Gallery and it demonstrates how many ways an artist can interpret that theme.
Northumberland gifted and talented coordinator Shauna McCrainie, a former art teacher, judged the exhibit.
Harold Burnley placed first with “Fire and Ice,” a photo on aluminum.
“The focal point in this composition is the warm sunshine which is framed so nicely by the snow-filled branches surrounding it,” said McCranie. “I chose it for many reasons but mainly because I could feel both hot and cold so vividly through the defection of the landscape photography.”
Ron Taylor placed second with an acrylic painting, “Fire and Ice #2.” Maribeth Memmo won third with her watercolor, “Tea Cup/Cup of Tea,” that incorporated tea leaves into the piece. Honorable mentions were awarded to Mary Ellis for her acrylic, “Modern Plumbing,” to Jan Dobrowolski for “Amber and Ice” earrings, Ron Smith for his acrylic “$98.6°;” to Ann Vliet for “Urgent Visit,” an acrylic painting; and Trainor for his photograph, “Fire and Ice #4.”
The exhibit will continue through February 25 at the Studio Gallery, 19 North Main Street, Kilmarnock. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
