The annual All ABout Gourds juried exhibit will be on display until October 7.
Sherry Benedict took the Best of Show award for her Forest Floor. Sherry just returned to the event after an absence of several years. She has three works in the show and they are all beautiful. As Best of Show, Sherry's entry earns her a $150 cash prize. First place in each category earns a $50 cash award and 2nd place earns $25. Congratulations to our winners!

We'll be making a few changes to next year's exhibition. These will be published well in advance of the entry deadline. Also, a select few gourds will remain on display for an additional week (October 14) to complement a book-signing event for Leslie Byars Register that will be held from 3 until 6pm on that day.
