The Janice Mason Art Museum opened its second juried exhibit Friday night and announced the winners to a delighted small crowd. The previous juried show was in 2005, and museum administrator Paula Lisowsky said they would plan to have it every two years.

“A show of this quality with generous prize money will draw the best in the area,” said Lisowsky. “Of course, without sponsorship by Bank of Cadiz and Trust Company, this wouldn’t have been possible.”

Awards were made to the following artists: Betty Liles of Hopkinsville for “Lily;” Loretta Boley of Cadiz for “Idol Gossip;” Robert Little of Nixa, Mo. for “Walnut Street;” Ken Roberts of Cadiz for “CXII,” Kathryn Harper of Cadiz for “Pillows,” Robin Martin-Holmes of Murray for “Inner Struggle;” Sandra Welleford of Lexington for “Woodland Vest;” Mitchell Bryant of Cadiz for “Horizon Series 2-07;” and Geneva Parris of Cadiz for “Jye-ting, Lung Shan Temple.”

The Museum began soliciting artwork for the show in July, and received a total of 73 entries from around the region. Dr. Camille Serre of Murray State University served as juror. Dr. Serre selected 37 entries for inclusion in the show, including drawings, paintings, woodcarvings, woodturning, mixed media sculpture, fiber art and photography. She decided to divide the prize money among nine winners.
