[ARCHIVED] Photo, Glass & Floral Exhibit scheduled


James City County is hosting a Photo, Glass & Floral Exhibit on Sept. 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Launchpad Greater Williamsburg Business Incubator, 4345 New Town Ave., Ste. 200 (above Paul’s Deli and Neighborhood Restaurant in New Town). This exhibit is free and open to the public and is part of Williamsburg Fall Arts programming.

As a part of the exhibit, 20 winning photographs will be exhibited and the 10 winners will have accompanying glass sculptures created by the Virginia Glass Guild and flower arrangements made by members of the Williamsburg Garden Club. All glass sculptures and flower arrangements were inspired by the 10 winning photographs.

The photographs were collected as part of the Rural Photo Contest sponsored by the James City County Rural Economic Development Committee. More than 60 photographs of locations in the County were submitted in 10 categories: farm and working lands; rivers, waterways and farm ponds; native flora and fauna; farm animals and wildlife; farm equipment; rural recreation; rural lifestyle; rural routes; ugly produce and tremendous timber.

Photographs were judged by a panel of five judges with experience in art, photography and rural lands.

Winners of the Rural Photo Contest were Timothy Mills, Peter Pritchard, Ashlie Shellenberger, Michael Crowder, Shannon Schojan, Leslie Newman and Corey Nelson. Runners up were Sandy Cetin, Brittany Lahr, John Schloendorn, Stephen Geissler, Peter Pritchard and Shannon Schojan.
