ARTS 2013, which opens this weekend, features dozens of works by emerging and established local artists.

First-place was awarded to artists in the five categories.

Sean Mills acrylic bubble called Artist Space/Market Place took top spot in the three-dimensional category; best drawing went to Jeanette Sirois’ ink and colour pencil drawing called Lorraine (right); Susan Baranszky-Job’s acrylic  painting Shiny Wants, Deep Woods won in the Works on Canvas category; The Road not Taken, a watercolour and ink painting by Juwan Kim, won best in Works on Paper; and Helma Sawatzky’s Trace Elements – untitled 2 (at left), took first place for photography. Second, third and honourable mentions will be awarded in each category as well.

Gallery visitors are also invited to vote for the People’s Choice Award that will be announced at the close of the show at the end of August.

An opening reception takes place Friday, June 28, beginning at 7:15 p.m. Admission to the reception is free, while admission to the gallery is by donation.
