Some talented artists were called to the front of the class to receive their awards during the opening reception for the Top of the recent Class A+ juried art exhibit at Northwest Florida State College South Walton campus.

A reception was held April 5 where attendees enjoyed food, drinks, and the artwork of 24 different artists who submitted 34 pieces of artwork for judging. Juror for the show was Linda Hall of Tallahassee, who is on the faculty at Florida State University . Hall selected the 34 from more than 60 submissions.

Artwork created in a variety of mediums was juried into the show and now graces the walls of the college's public rooms.

Submissions came mostly from the many artists living in Walton and Okaloosa counties, and most belong to the active local Women's Art Network.

WAN members participating in the exhibition include Susan Alfieri, Donnelle Clark, Carol Dickson, Judy DeWar, Katherine Duda, Anne Hugghins, Suzanne LeLoup-West, Sharon Long, Terry Long, Joey McKenna, Arlene Newsome, Kristina Perry, Nan Ream, Ann Welch, Nancy Williams, Sue Carol Woodley, and Mary Zahner.

And non-WAN members showing include Joanna Ellington, Emily Ellis, Vaughn Greene, Allison Hicks, Mary Hong, JoAnne Jones, and Melanie Moore.

Artists didn't know who the winners were until their names were announced the night of the opening reception.
