The North Thompson Arts Council had three members bring home awards from the 9th Annual Thompson Nicola Shuswap Chapter of the Federation of the Canadian Artists Fine Art Show in late September.  Barriere resident Marie Downing, had three works entered that made it to the final round, winning twice with one of the entries.

“I am really excited to share with everyone that my painting “Belgians Draft Team” took the third place award in the Federation of the Canadian Artists TNSC Fine Art Show,” said Marie, “The same picture also took third place in Peoples Choice. Thank you to everyone who voted!”

This contest is a tough one to enter, as all the art submitted is pre-juried just to get into the contest.  Then the works are judged again to get to the final stage, then judged one last time to decide on the winners.

A total of 51 paintings by various artists made it to the final round of judging this year.

NTAC member Deb Swain, won second prize with her painting “It’s a Reach”, and NTAC member Norma Stewart of Barriere,  had two paintings make it to the final round, with her painting “Green Lake” taking second place in the People’s Choice.
