The reception was well attended by numerous juried artists traveling from Savannah, Athens, and throughout the metro area and their supporters. After the introduction of the awards, Kenson Thompson, the judge, noted that her selection of the merit awards was a difficult choice, but a common thread ran throughout her selections - works with a story, a mystery and paintings that made her want to go paint! The reception was followed by a workshop held at the school by Kenson in her techniques this weekend. She said she gave away all of her secrets and was so willing to share! A number of students at the workshop took my suggestion and visited the Women's Center at Northside Hospital where a large collection of commissioned works by Kenson are on permanent display.
