Best of Show winner in the Advanced division was Edward Knirlberger of Mount Carroll, Ill., for his wood carving of “Great Blue Heron”. Fine Arts judge was Debora Stewart of Clinton.

In the photography division, Judge Kevin Trettin of Clinton chose Kaitlin Rabuck of Savanna as Best of Show winner in the Amateur division for her photo “Weeping Angel”. Jennifer McColley of Savanna achieved the same rating in the advanced class for her photo entitled “God Bless You”.

The PAL Peer Award was won by Andrea Streets of Sabula for her oil painting titled “Serene”. Only the PAL members can vote for their favorite piece of art for the Peer Award, which is a special medal.

This year’s progressive painting, a work in acrylic called “Heaven’s Splendor”, created by seven members of the Palisades Art League, went to Vaughn Hazel as the special door prize.

A homemade pie from the Heartland Pet Welfare was given to Mary Falls of Thomson, Ill.
