The mixed media collage of a child delivering newspapers on his bike titled “The Paper Boy” by Debra Campbell won first place in the Precious Faces art exhibition at the Gallery at Carrollwood Cultural Center during a reception on Friday, June 10.
Precious Faces is a visual art exhibit that celebrates children’s sweet, innocent faces – their priceless expressions, inquisitive eyes, curious nature, and toothless grins that all warm the heart and bring joy to the world.
The Gallery announced the winning pieces during a public reception. Other winning works included second place for “Make a Joyful Noise” by Jennifer Thomas-Houdeshell and third place for “First Notes” by Suzy Edl. In addition, honorable mentions were awarded for “School Days” by Betsy Ore Glass and “Jack” by Cindy Valdez. Local artist Kathy Durdin served as the judge for the exhibition.
Precious Faces will remain on display through July 30. Admission to The Gallery is free. For more information, including viewing hours, visit carrollwoodcenter.org, email [email protected] or call (813) 922-8167.
