The Fountain Hills Art League and FH Cultural and Civic Association are pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 Juried Art Exhibition,
which is hanging at the Community Center through January.  Much of the art is for sale; artist information is available at the reception desk.  .   

The judge, Donna Levine, offered these comments on her decisions:
"I judged basically on three things:
1)  Understanding of and ability to use basic elements of drawing, composition, color, value, etc.
2)  Understanding the possibilities and skill in the use of the chosen media.
3)  Very important…Communication!  What is the artist saying and is he/she achieving it? Doesn’t have to be overt. Can be subtle. But still the driving force!! "
