Art Show Awards Given

    The Cedarburg Cultural Center has announced the winners of the Sheboygan Visual Artists’ juried exhibit, which runs through Sunday, Aug. 26.
    The Best of Show award was earned by Tom Ferguson for his photograph, “Fountainhead,” which juror Pat Robison said is an “intriguing image, although architectural, vacillates between vertical and horizontal viewing. It becomes even more engaging with its subtle references to landscape and figurative forms.”
    Second place went to Kristina Halseth for her photograph, “Becoming Something New,” which Robison calls “a dramatically lit abstraction at first glance, this image not only evokes thoughts about waste and recycling, but again asks us where we find and how we define beauty.”
    Third place was awarded to Tom Dent for his assemblage, “No Escape,” which Robison described as a “collection of powerful symbols (which) not only initiates a discussion of the depicted story but suggests a larger conversation of the “no escape” feelings that we have all experienced.”
    A People’s Choice Award determined by visitors to the exhibit went to Ferguson’s photograph “Under Stormy Skies.”
       Robison, whose works have been widely exhibited and are in numerous public and private collections, earned a bachelor of fine arts and master’s degree in ceramics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He taught ceramics at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan and at Lakeland University in Sheboygan County. In 1998, he and his wife Karen established Two Fish Gallery in Elkhart Lake.     
    The exhibit and sale is the first show outside of Sheboygan for Sheboygan Visual Artists.  
     The cultural center is at W62 N546 Washington Ave.
