Phyllis Lucas was awarded the Decatur County Artists Guild Best of Show Thursday for her Open Gate piece.

Kathleen Ketterer, Decatur County Artists Guild president, said, “We have a lot of good art to share with the community.”

The artwork, which included art from artists all around Decatur County, was judged in three categories; two dimensional, photography and best of show.

Suzanna Reese Winton, a rising artist from Thomasville who specializes in medium watercolor, was the presiding judge.

The Decatur County Artists Guild art show is normally done in conjunction with Artsfest, but since there was no Artsfest this year they decided to host their own show.

The winners for the two dimensional category are the following: First place, John E. Bayides with East Shotwell Street home series of the Donaldson-Rollins home; second place was Beth Lee with Creatures of the Deep 2, and third place went to Ed White with Old Cattle Barn.

The winners for the photography category are the following: first place, Bob Hester with Traveled Road; second place was Kathy Ketterer with Flint River Dock, and third place was Regina Gossett with Monarch Butterfly.

The Decatur County Artists Guild meets every Monday from August to May. If you are interested in joining, please contact Ketterer at
