Our annual Historic Linthicum Walks Awards Show was held two weekends in October, the 5-6 and 12-13. From Exhibition Chair Joan Machinchick:
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to making the 2019 Linthicum Walks Exhibit a memorable show. It really did take a community, with everyone pitching in, to help make it a successful event. The Hospitality Team was there all four days, assuring that there were always refreshments and beverages, especially for the reception; the Publicity Team for contacting the press and posting information on social media; the Sign Team who installed the signs each morning and took them down each evening; the artists who sketched on the grounds; Mildred Anderson for her legendary black walnut cake at the reception, floral arrangements that brightened the refreshment table and for her generous donation of a special award; to all the artists who submitted paintings and especially to all the members who volunteered their time to greet our guests and talk with them about the art and artists. A very special thanks to the Friends of HIstoric Linthicum Walks for their gracious hospitality, preparing the building and grounds for us and doing everything before we even asked to make our exhibit run smoothly. Over 225 guests walked through our doors on the four days of the exhibit. Several paintings and giclées were sold and a raffle netted over $100 for the Friends of Linthicum Walks.
The noted watercolor artist, Ken Karlic, was our judge this year and he spoke about his award choices and praised the overall excellent quality of the exhibit.The winners were: Janice Hendra, first place for “Pier No More”; George A. Athanasas, second place for “Untitled”; Stacy Lund Levy, third plce for “Afternoon in Miami”. There were three Honorable Mentions: Bob Fuller for “Orient Express”; Barbara Burns for “Waiting for Spring”; Annette Uroskie for “The Three Graces”. The Mildred Anderson Award for best representational painting went to Claudia Johnson for “Marina” and the People’s Choice was awarded to Stacy Lund Levy for “Marty”

Please excuse the many reflections; photographing at Linthicum Walks is difficult due to the many windows and lamps. Click on any image below and use the arrow buttons to advance through them.
