“Spring Bed #4” by Catherine Wagner Minnery of Saratoga Springs was named best in show at Albany Center Gallery’s Project Art, a pop-up gallery at last weekend’s Great Northeast Home Show at Times Union Center.
The award for the 8-by-8-inch oil-on-panel painting comes with a $250 prize and is meant to recongize a single work that stood out among the more than 90 entries of various mediums by artists from throughout the Capital Region.
Four other works received recognition as honorable mentions. They were:
- “Coincidentia Oppositorum” by Chris Escobar of Albany, mixed media
- “Lake George” series by Chris DeMarco of Albany, photography
- “View” by Jenny Hutchinson of Glens Falls, painting
- “Bloodwood and Holly Vessel” by Raymond Puffer of Watervliet, sculpture (wood turning)
The jurors of the show were Elizabeth Dubben, director of exhibitions at Saratoga Arts; Tony Iadicicco, executive director of Albany Center Gallery; and Michael Janairo, Times Union’s arts and entertainment editor.
