Altrusa International of the Eastern Sierra held its annual Art Sale Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1 in Tri-County Fairgrounds Tallman Pavilion.
The popular event began with over 200 people attending the Friday night reception, a vibrant opportunity for art enthusiasts to mingle with the artists themselves. The two-day sale included a spectacular display of featured artist Gina Webber and a raffle prize – a beautiful original Lynn Peterson watercolor painting titled, “Sunny Ones.”
Reception attendees enjoyed hors d’oeuvres prepared by Altrusa members and wine courtesy of Manor Market. They also voted on their favorite works and Laura Diko took home the Best of Show prize for her watercolor “The Green Church.” Three artists were given People’s Choice awards. The first place winner was Dick Buhler, while Elizabeth Wistrom and Evanne Jardine took home second and third place, respectively.
