Four first place ribbons!

On My Own TimeA panel of judges from the Springfield Area Arts Council completed their review yesterday of LLCC’s “On My Own Time” art exhibit, and four first place ribbons were awarded! Several other awards were also handed out as well. So take a moment to visit the Trutter Center, take in the full display and cast your vote for the LLCC People’s Choice recipient.

The exhibit features 28 works of art created by LLCC faculty and staff and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. People’s Choice voting continues through the end of October, with the winner receiving a $50 Visa gift card courtesy of the Trutter Museum.

All pieces awarded first place will move on to the OMOT city-wide exhibit. The OMOT city-wide exhibit will be at the Springfield Art Association (SAA), 700 North Fourth St., Nov. 5-23. The city-wide awards, as well as the city-wide best of show award will be announced at a reception at the SAA on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

A few pieces are for sale – shop for that someone special and see if you can find them a one-of-a-kind gift! Contact Misty or Lindee if you are interested in purchasing  any of the artwork that is for sale.

Congratulations to everybody that participated in OMOT!
