Two Waters Arts Alliance held its annual “Spring Fling” in early April and met their goal of raising $10,000 for the Artists in Schools program.

Area artists displayed their talent in media from photography to woodworking while silent auctions filled the gymnasium at the Key Peninsula Civic Center.

Emcees Bill Trandum and Jessica Smeall took the stage for a live auction and attendees raised their paddles as they sampled gourmet desserts and mingled.

Judge’s Choice awards from the juried show went to Bryan Peterson for his photograph, “Misty Morning Fog” and to Taylor Reed for her painting, “The North Side.”

On the list for Honorable Mention were Chris Bronstad’s charcoal drawing, “All Mine”; Darlene Dihel’s “Octopus and Shrimp;” and Laura McClintock’s “Jeweled Planet.” The People’s Choice was “Venice Canal” an impressionist painting by Norma Meyer. The student art awards went to seventh grader Carly Cashman–DiBiase for mask work and to eighth grader Sierra Rose Nason for photography. Both are students at Key Peninsula Middle School.
