selections were chosen for awards in the
"All along the Lee Shore . . ." exhibit - one Best of
Show and two Honorable Mentions. All dealt with one of the primary aspects
of what a
- either an enticement to safe harbor OR indeed, the opposite - a drifing
toward what could ultimately spell danger and destruction - the dark side.
Most of the work in this exhibit alluded to one or the other of these
two basic themes, discussed in our Prospectus,
- but only a few managed to incorporate both themes into any one single
piece. The image selected here as Best of Show did just that - and very
successfully, we think!
Waking At Ocean's Side
by John Ritchie
In this image,
John seamlessly conveys the dual message of the warmth of the home fire,
as well as the cold, forboding sea. It's almost like we can make out an
image of a shipwreck in the cold, icy-blue waters crashing on the shore!
As Susan pointed out: "This image draws us in - across the cold sea
and rocky shore to the warmth of fire and safety."
Ventura After Dark
by Kerstin Nelson
The warm glow of safe harbor and civilization, along side of the three
spots of light on the horizon draw us into this beatiful panoramic image.
Wave Upon Wave
by Teresa Kirby Smith
With recent news items etched in our collective psyche - of pirates, tropical
storms, and tsanamis - this image really 'speaks' to us of the fragile
relationship between shore and sea, of the power and the danger.
