SONSI Exhibit 2012. Photo: Emily Damstra

The opening reception for SONSI’s 2012 exhibit at the Rotunda Gallery in Kitchener City Hall was very well attended! I estimate 40-50 people came to our reception. The refreshments that Elizabeth organized were delicious – and mostly devoured – by the end of the afternoon. Attendees voted on their favourite works and the following is a list of the prizewinners:

1st place: “Watching You” by Lori Dunn
2nd place (tie): “Young Red Maple” by Kathryn Chorney
2nd place (tie): “Devonian Placoderm” by Emily S. Damstra
3rd place: “Cinnabar polypore” by Trish Murphy
Honourable Mention: “Muskie Crush” by Charles Weiss
Honourable Mention: “Empire of the Beetle” by Jesse Koreck

Voting was a difficult task as there were so many interesting, diverse and wonderful works on display. Apologies for not having close-up photographs of everyone’s work; I got a little distracted and missed some areas!

Thanks to all who helped put on the exhibit and to all who participated.
The show is up until 2 PM on April 29. The gallery is open 7 AM to 9 PM M-F and 9 AM to 9 PM weekends.
