Gold Medal Show - 2015

Misha Livshultz

This is the best sculptural portrait that Misha has ever done -- as well as the  best that I've ever seen in our gallery.  Its subject is Del Hall, the club's unofficial photographer of record.  As it turns out, Del has had quite career shooting famous people and events -- and this face reflects  his many adventures.

Contrary to the  notions of one local authority  , figure sculpture can offer a kind of likeness that has nothing in common with the clinically correct displays found in  wax museums.

Richard Morrow

This is my pick for the Silver Medal.  I don't have much patience with joke-art because  seriousness needs to be cultivated outside commercial and religious contexts.

But this is one beautifully executed gag.

Stephanie Weidner

This is my pick for Bronze Medal.  It's deft simplicity is so refreshing - in a show where everything else tries to go in the opposite direction.

Buell Cole

Clayton Beck

Errol Jacobson

(this won the Gold Medal -- which Errol also won last year. It's quirky/solemn mood made me think of a science fiction episode where citizens have filled the streets after an alien invasion)

Jose Bedolla

 Mark Huddle


Stuart Fullerton

Robert Tati

(This won the second-place medal)
