Thank You Artists

November 18, 2019
Best in Show

Art can speak things that often cannot be said with words. The Newark Valley United Church of Christ would like to thank all of the artists for participating in our second annual art show, and sharing their work with the community.  Over $ 750.00O in prize money was awarded to the artists. Our goal is to simply support artists and their creations, as well as to build connections and community.  Their artwork helped to share the beauty of nature with others, and helps others to see a little bit of heaven in their work.  Thank you to our judges, Suzanne Lachman and Christina di Stefano.   We hope to grow the art show and encourage these artists and others to consider participating in our spring art exhibit or next year’s art show, our poetry jams, music nights, and other events we hold here at our church.  Together we can bridge communities and build connection with others.

This show is held in part to honor the memory of Bill and Jeannette Pomidor, Parents of Catherine Young, who were very much supporters of the arts, especially in their hometown of Willoughby, Ohio. Catherine’s mother was an artist and traveled the country with her art work after she retired from teaching, and her father was an English professor who began writing after his retirement.
