Letter to the Editor


Yesterday it was my priviledge to judge the art work at the fair.  I say priviledge, because it was that.

I've never been one to support compititon in art because I always felt every artist has a style not unlike an individual's handwriting. However, if I could have given everyone a blue ribbon on these group of entries I would have.

The promise involved with each and every piece of artwork gave me the greatest hope.  I could see future designers of cars, houses, appliances, electronic equipment, landscapers, and so much more.

For the adult it was just impossible to chose.  The memories recorded in such a painstakingly  way made me feel proud.  Here were grandmothers and grandfathers dedicating a piece of artwork that in my opinion could be saved as heirlooms by their families. On the other hand, young adults too, showed such concentration to devote their time to this tieing of people together with an idea.

I'm proud of the dedicated ladies who worked so hard to categorize these entries,  which was almost impossible to do.  I know this community must be aware of what a special job they are doing and how much it means for a person's efforts to be acknowledged and encouraged.  We could only give first, second and third, but I hope everyone knows how important art is to a community and to a future generation so that they enter again next year  when another judge will pick them, not because of one being any better than the other, but just because the work appeals to that particular judge.
