On June 4, the London Visual Arts Guild presented prizes to participants in the ‘Images’ community art exhibition which ran from May 5 to 29 at the London Arts Centre.

London Mayor Patrick Closser has chosen a photograph of a giraffe by Debbie Walker as the winner of the Mayor’s Choice award. The photograph was one of 47 entries in the exhibition.

The public also got in on the action by voting for their favorite entries during the show. People’s Choice Award winners included:

• Photography–Bob Rea for his “Storm Clouds” photography;
• Paintings and Drawings–Ken Madden for his graphite pencil rendering, “Ole Farm House”
• Arts and Crafts–Liz Lassel for her “purple flower quilt”; and
• Sculpture–James Harris for his woodcarving “Eve”.

The Mayor’s Choice Award for Community Art Exhibition from the London Visual Arts Guild went to Debbie Walker for her photograph of a giraffe.

The Spotlight Youth Award, open to people 16 and under, went to Destiny Coleman and Dani Kennedy. Each received a $25 gift card and a one-year Arts Guild membership.

Awards were presented at the opening reception for the current exhibition at the Arts Center – ‘Barns, Bees and Elephant’s Knees’, a combined collection of photography and art by Debbie Walker, Sondra Fox and Hilary Frambes. The music was provided by David Kennedy, a local talent who attends Capital University on a full music scholarship.

The public is invited to stop by the London Arts Center to see “Barns, Bees and Elephant Knees”. The show runs until the end of June. The opening hours of the gallery are: Tuesday, from 4 to 7 p.m.; Thursday, 11am-2pm, Saturday, 10am-2pm; and Sunday, 11am-2pm
