LINCOLNTON, N.C.––The annual Paul C. Rhyne Art Competition was a big success.

That’s this word this week from Arts Council of Lincoln County spokeswoman Deanna McGinnis. The arts council also announced the winners of the annual event, which drew some 70 different entries. They will remain on display at the Lincoln Cultural Center through Nov. 30.

Brenda Beard Bostian won first-place honors for “Pthagouris Twin.” Longtime arts council veteran Kae Wright earned second place for “Hello, October.” And Rachel Kupper earned third place for “Little Red Riding Hood.”  

Honorable mentions went to Sherry Bourbeau for “Cotton Poetry,” Kristopher Goodman for “The Waiting,” Mary Kamerer for “Along the Greenway,” Jane Wingate Mitchell for “Flood Plain,” George Pitsikoulis for “Carolina Is My Home” and Stacey Pilkington Smith for “Spring Green Man.”

And Kamerer won the $500 Rhyne Financial Purchase Award for “Always Looking Up.” Mitchell’s “Flood Plain” also earned the $250 Eaker’s Nursery Tree Farm Merit Award for Landscape or Nature.

Held every year, the competition was renamed 11 years ago to memorialize the late Paul Rhyne, a longtime supporter of the arts council, as McGinnis noted. Rhyne was himself an accomplished painter, known for his water colors.

To learn more about Arts Council of Lincoln County events, call McGinnis at (704) 732-9044.
