                                                                      ARTS ON THE RIVER

The 2018 Arts on the River is now in the books, as they say.  A small drizzle turned into a real downpour mid
afternoon, and the show was officially called about 3 pm.  Crowds had been good, and some of the die-hards
stayed for awhile -- those without "sensitive" media.  The RiverCenter location proved to be generally better
than the median of Broadway, though beginning in a new site is sometimes trying.  Though next year's show
is still up in the air pending a sponsor, we intend to tweak the layout just in case.  Norm Easterbrook
(RiverCenter director)and his wife dropped by, and seemed happy with th layout.  Here's a list of the winners
(photos can be seen on the
WINNERS page).

Best in Show:   Liz Sabatino, Columbus, GA, clay
First Place:  Donnie Crocker, Columbus, wood.
Second Place:  Timmie Glover, Midland, GA, Oil
Third Place:  Arlaine Morrison, Suwanee, GA, Watercolor
Merit Awards:  Len Jagoda, Waverly Hall, GA, bronze, pastel, oil
       Mike & Jan Sherwood, Alabaster, AL, Acrylic
Honorable Mention: Richard Shelby, Notasulga, AL, Turned wood
       Ralph Taylor, Phenix City, AL, Watercolor
LTC Michael A. Tryon Memorial Award:  Michael Marshall, Columbus, GA, Oil
CHARLES DAVIS ALLSTATE Award:  Betty Jean McLendon, Columbus, GA, acrylic, pastel

This years show had the
Gallery on 10th as it's gold sponsor, and the Gallery had an exhibit as a part of the
show.

Our judge, Megan McNaught of Macon, was quite impressed with the quality of art in the exhibition.  Megan
was a practically last minute selection, as the original choice was unable to come.  Megan did an admirable
job, and enjoyed her visit to Columbus.
It can be quite discouraging to do an art show in the rain, and
even more discouraging if you don't win anything.  Eventually
you get tired of hearing people tell you, "that's part of doing an
outdoor show".  While true, It's still a pain.  Generally the
weather in October is pretty good.  This is the 23rd year for the
show, and in those years we have endured rain, pounding rain,
a tornado warning (one was sighted across the river), and
wind.  But generally the weather has been good, and we
certainly appreciate that.  The photo here is from about 2001
when we were in the green space right next to the river.  We
evacuated a littlebit later.
