Fall Arts Festival announces winners

Ryan Graff

On Thursday afternoon Anne Martinez of Broomfield had a surprise phone call from a newspaper in Glenwood Springs. Anne returned the call curious about what the reporter wanted to talk to her about. Turns out that Martinez’s watercolor “Arizona Colors” had been named reserve champion of the Glenwood Springs Art Guild’s Fall Art Festival. “That’s nice to hear,” she said. “I’m thrilled.”Martinez has entered the Fall Art Festival before and done well but had never won the reserve champion prize before. Martinez painted “Arizona Colors” from a photograph she took of two flowers with a cactus in the background.Strangely, “Arizona Colors” hadn’t sold by Thursday morning, even as the reserve champion ribbon hung on its frame in the Fall Art Festival’s gallery in the basement of the Ramada Inn.Mark Lemon of Eagle won the Grand Champion prize for his mixed media sketch of a nude woman lying on a couch. Lemon couldn’t be reached for comment. Contact Ryan Graff: 945-8515, ext. 520rgraff@postindependent.com
