Overall winner as Best of Show is Elizabeth Bautista, an ink acrylic painter. Other winners include Tony Radcliffe, first place; Martha Cowan, second place; Noreen Ring, third place; and Patty Fournier Willis, honorable mention.
Angela Koenig, Brandon’s chair for the event, says the gallery has adopted “open” categories to put more stress on artistic technique. Winners in those categories were: R. Mike Nichols, one each for best composition and edge control; Shirley Calvert, use of color; Adeola Davies-Aiyeloja, best in storytelling; Virginia Cole, best design; and Chick Curtis, second year in a row for best use of light.

Fallbrook’s Brandon Gallery echoes a century-old tradition of artists’ collaboration with an “Exquisite Corpse” project in October, it was announced today.
Noreen Ring, gallery director, said that several teams of artists are creating unique paintings of a figure; however, in keeping with the unpredictability of the “Cadavre Exquis” art form, each person does not see the entire “body of work” by the other artists, but only enough to know where and how to link her segment. The Exquisite Corpse approach dates back to the 1920s surrealist period when artists celebrated the idea of art “created by all” instead of one.
Five well-known and skilled artists from Brandon Gallery are participating through the end of the project on October 18. The artists: Virginia Cole, Kathleen Morgan, Colette Passini, Noreen Ring and Carol Zaleski worked individually and collectively to create three finished canvases. Each piece will be sold during a silent auction at a public reception and sale Oct. 18, 4-7 PM.
