The Arts of Great Falls School held its annual art show and competition for adult students who took a class or workshop in 2018.  From the 45 pieces of art in oil, pastel, and mixed media submitted by 25 adult students, competition judge Jill Poyerd -online gallery artist and YouTube instructor- announced the winners at the Awards Reception Friday, April 12.  Poyerd named 1st Place to Nahid Momenian (Untitled), 2nd Place to Doreen Montis (Dance of the Poppies), and 3rd Place to Theresa Miller (Tulips in a Mason Jar).  The People’s Choice award voted on by the 35 guests attending the reception went to Rana Sharaiha (The River).  Honorable Mention was given to Paula Cotrell, Kim Burke, Julia Malakoff, and Rana Sharaiha.  “The quality of the art submitted by the students has gotten better and better over the years.  We are proud of our students and teachers,” said Julie Casso, director of The Arts of Great Falls School.  The art will be exhibited through April in The Arts of Great Falls Gallery at 756 Walker Road in Great Falls Village Centre.
