The Johnston County Arts Council has announced the winners in its fourth annual Arts and Food Festival Gala. They are listed below by division.
The contests paid $100 for first place, $50 for second and $25 for third.
Six members of the Arts Council Board of Directors – Chris Boyette, Judy Boyette, Jane Kate Brown, John McFadden, Sandra O’Berry and Jo Tucker – painted a collaboration piece titled “The Old Neuse River Bridge.” It was among the items sold during the silent auction.
Proceeds from the festival go to community programming, the Artists-in-the-Schools program and scholarships for Johnston Community College students studying fine arts.
