fter months of final preparation, our five top winners in our Parlor for a reception, then to a very interesting panel
discussion moderated by Peter Trippi, the editor-in-chief of Fine Art Connoisseur magazine.
The five finalists were Heather Personett, who won First Prize and followed by Susan Wakeen, Kate Brockman, Erik Ebling, and Matt Gemmell.
Questions from Peter Trippi helped to tell the story of the sculpture world today. They spoke of the efforts to create a bust, and as part of their business to honestly speak of making their profits.
Following the panel discussion, a large group of both sculptors, Mr. Trippi, and members of the audience gathered at a large table in our dining room. Comments about the extensive menu and the quality of the foods were highly gratifying, to say the least.
