The Indiana NOW exhibit opened at the Art Museum Friday, showcasing artists from around the state. Best of Show went to Dawn Adams of Bloomington. In addition to the $1,000 award, she also sold the painting, "Lake Griffy Reflections." After looking at over 500 works of art, and selecting 73 for the exhibition, the juror's comment was that due to Dawn's name in the alphabet, this was the first work he saw, and it set the standard for his entire selection process.
The exhibit runs through August. You can see more of Dawn's work at the Round the Fountain Art Fair May 25 in Lafayette. Or check her web site: http://www.dawnadamspaintings.com/index.html
