Report from the Panoply Arts Festival

Art festivals in Alabama are like everywhere else, each one has a different flavor, be it in Birmingham, Fairhope or Huntsville. This weekend's Panoply in Huntsville is a good example. We have participated in this event. We were amazed when we drove east from I-65 to Huntsville, it seemed there was a freeway especially built to reach Huntsville. The high tech industry has really made this town. There are lots of people with good educations. The festival is held in Big Spring Park near the Boeing Museum and is a big deal each Spring. Here are this year's prize winners: Best of Show: Frederick Warren of North Muskegon, Mich. (Glass) Award of Distinction: Joseph Wujcik, Calera, Ala. (Wood) Merit Awards: Jason Bove, Oregonia, Ohio (Clay) Dennis Leatherman, Huntsville, (Drawing) Linda Overton Heath, Cowan, Tenn, (Drawing) Joseph Maschinot, Cave Spring, Ga.
