Congratulations to winners of the 2016 "Art: The Universal Language" contest! Entries were judged based on: originality, imagination, visual interest, and skillful use of materials.
BEST IN SHOW: HELEN FRANZ
Description from artist: "I saw a yellow flower while on a walk in my neighborhood and took this photo of it with my phone. Using Photoshop, I made a copy of the original in gray tones. This was laid on top of the color photo. With the eraser too, l I erased parts of the gray photo to create the completed image. Since the eye is attracted to light, the first thing I see is the bright yellow of the petals, marred by gray. But it's actually the gray that overlaps the color."
