Portrait Contest - Artfields
Artfields, Lake City, SC
There was a respectful hush in the building where the portrait contest was taking place at Artfields in Lake City. The artists were painting their models on the ground floor and observers were allowed to walk in on either side and watch the work in progress. Most of the models had two different artists. It was fascinating to watch. Twenty-four artists competed for "Best in Show" and over $1500 in cash prizes while creating portraits in three four hour timed rounds.
