GHAA Annual Exhibit and Honoring Don Herook

on Mon, 06/02/2014 - 10:53pm

The GHAA Annual Open Exhibit at Buttonwoods was a very successful event by all accounts. There were 65 works by 38 artists, and 77 attended the reception. The floral arrangement donated by Holland flowers was raffled, with Judith Larmay the lucky recipient.

Juror Susan Spellman was very impressed with both the quality and variety of the work; she presented the award for Best of Show to Joan Rademacher, and the awards for Exceptional Work to Maria Nemchuk and John Menihane.

Retiring president Donald Herook was presented with a plaque honoring him for his countless years of service, and a gift certificate to his favorite restaurant. The GHAA members and Don’s wife Sandy managed to keep this tribute a secret, and he was duly surprised!
