Our All-State Art competition contributions

WOW! This is always the toughest decision. Sometimes, even after all the photography, artists' statements, determining what will represent best in which category, Ridgway is still flummoxed by the judges final decisions. But this Art Show gives good feedback, and its great to have your work published on such a noteworthy site for a year! Check out this slideshow to see what was in the running this year...
