We had an incredible time at the 6th Annual Live Art Contest Showcase at the Orange County Regional History Center! We had 18 talented artists competing in mixed media, photography, student, paint, and sculpture categories. It was amazing to have such a diverse range of artistic expressions and styles; we are grateful for their contributions to making this event a huge success.
Throughout the event, attendees enjoyed light bites and drinks catered by Krush Caters, mingled with the artists, learned about their techniques, and voted for their favorite pieces. Guests were encouraged to look beyond the art piece and get to know the artists before voting. One of the highlights of the evening was the community canvas, where guests could unleash their creativity and contribute to a collaborative work of art.
Stephanie Bowman, founder and CEO of One Heart for Women and Children, Vanessa Annabella Vincenti with Sam Flax, and Juliana Davidson Ross, owner of Juliana Davidson LLC, had the difficult task of selecting the Best of Show and Most Original Piece winners. We appreciate their expertise, hard work, and dedication to the art community.
A huge congratulations to the winners of the contest:
Dee DeLoy, Paint, Best of Show
Leslie Hampton, Mixed Media, Most Original Piece
Tim Urban, Mixed Media, Fan Favorite
These artists deserve recognition for their exceptional talent, creativity, and dedication to their craft. Please stay tuned for our June issue featuring the winners.
Lastly, we couldn’t have done this without the Orange County Regional History Center. We are grateful for their hospitality in allowing us to host the event there. We hope you enjoyed exploring the different art forms and meeting the talented artists behind them. Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing everyone next year at our 7th Annual Live Art Contest Showcase!
