The Gibson Gallery was busy on Sunday as artists gathered with family and friends for the Blossoms, Blooms, and Buds exhibit awards.


Lisa Bassett, board member at the gallery said “each year, the exhibit is set up to coordinate with the Amherstburg Garden tour that is hosted by the Amherstburg Fort Malden Horticultural Society, and all of the artwork is based on floral, garden type of pieces.”


Entries are judged by professional artists and monetary prizes are given for first, second, and third place, as well as a people’s choice award, which is selected by the public.


The exhibit this year consisted of twenty-three pieces that were submitted for judging.


Judging was done by Stephen Gibb, Dennis K. Smith, and Dennis White, all well established artists in the community, and was based on creativity, composition, design based on theme, presentation, and much more.


The first-place winner this year was Cathy Bellis, with a water colour painting titled ‘Lilac’.


Second place went to Barbara Cozens, for her water color titled ‘Summer Garden’.


The third-place winner was Sandra Ellis for her water color titled ‘Cherry Blossoms for Alex’.


The People’s choice award went to Michelle Pollari for her acrylic piece titled ‘Lily of the Valley’.


A reception was held at the gallery following the awards ceremony.
