On Saturday, the 74th Guild Hall artist members show opened with scores of works in almost every possible medium, all submitted by South Fork artists.
Lilly Wei, an independent curator, essayist, and critic who writes for Art in America and ARTnews, determined the winners, among them Mary Ellen Bartley, who took best in show honors for her photograph “A Road Divided.” The distinction entitles Ms. Bartley to a solo show at Guild Hall at a future date.
Other winners included Ann Brandeis for best representational work, Zoe Breen for best abstract painting, Michelle Cooke for best sculpture, Barry McCallion for best work on paper, Patricia Feiwel for best mixed media, and JoAnna McCarthy for best photograph.
Honorable mentions went to Bonnie Tepper, Tom Edmonds, Philippe Cheng, Rosa Hanna Scott, John Hall, Susan Barnett, Eric Ernst, Jim Malloy, Daniel Pollera, Christa Maiwald, Lindsay Morris, Joe Pintauro, Sara Douglas, and Bonnie Wylo. The Catherine and Theo Hios Landscape Award, which comes with a $250 prize, went to Mark B. Terry. Kyla Zoe Rafert was awarded best new member artist.
The show will remain on view through June 9.
