2012 Autumn Art Show Results & Pictures

The Southeast Colorado Art Guild (SECAG) in conjunction with The Southeast Colorado Arts Council recently held their annual Autumn Art Show at the Shore Art Center on Main Street in Lamar, Colorado.

The show was open to the public from Tuesday through Friday, October 23 – 26 from 10am to 7pm. Judging was done on Sunday, October 21st by accomplished artist Tim Deibler from Walsenburg, Colorado.

The awards were presented to the winning artists on Thursday, October 25 at the Artists Reception. It was a wonderful show with excellent representation for the local artist community. Several artists from the La Junta area did very well in the show, including Apolo Miranda who took “Best of Show” for his piece  “La Crucifiables“.

It was noted that there were only three less pieces this year for the show but the sentiment overall was that the quality of this year’s entries are a step above  last year’s.
