For the third year in a row, local artists painted their way into the fall juried art show at The Hidden Lantern Gallery in Rosemary Beach.

Originally the Back to Nature Exhibit, this year the exhibit became "Scenes of South Walton."

Niceville artist Carol Ann Cain said she was in a Back to Nature mindset when she submitted her depictions of Niceville's Turkey Creek.

Cain's "My True View of Turkey Creek" beat out the rest and took home best in show.

Judged by two South Walton art gallery owners, the 30 by 30-inch acrylic on canvas painting depicts a fall foliage scene many South Waltoners do not see south of 30A.

"Her piece stood out to me," said show judge Laura Granberry. "All of her work was different from what you normally see down here. I felt it had its own style and something spoke to me about it."

This was Cain's first time to enter.
