Winning art. Mildred Ming of Booneville won two awards at the recent annual Butterfly Festival in Paris.

Two local artists collected all four ribbons at the Butterfly Festival Art Show and won prize money totalling over $100.

Artist Mildred Ming won first place for her watercolor “Grapes & Leaves. She also won second place for her drawing of a “Hummingbird in Flight.”

Third place and Best of Show was given to Sandra Davis for her acrylic painting titles “Snowy Gulch.”

It has been an active and rewarding year for the Artist Assemblage that meet at the Booneville Senior Center.

Trish Reiners won Best of Show at the 2013 South Logan County Fair. Wanda Riddle and Melba Wells won the People Choice Award last November. Christine Hamilton had six of her fiber art designs at the Mena Art Gallery. Davis is Artist of the Month with her work on display at the Greenwood City Hall.

The artists are working on a gift shop in the Booneville Senior Center lobby. All of the proceeds go toward the needs of the Senior Center. The next project will be a gallery wall in the main dining room.

The Booneville Senior Center offers art, craft, ceramic and knit and crocheting classes all free of charge. Check the newspaper schedule for times and dates. The Booneville Public Library has windmill paintings on display.
