Best of Show

Martins’ photograph, titled “Flower Child,” received the Mary Alice Arakelian Memorial Award for Best of Show at The Newburyport Art Association’s 2007 Annual Members Fall Juried Show, Part 1. The photograph depicts a vendor at a craft fair. Said show juror Paula Toganarell, “I chose this piece for the Best of Show piece, because of its intimate perspective and narrative nature. As the viewer, I am invited into this woman’s world. I became enthralled by the subject’s bold colors, her exotic tattoos and whimsical back drop. Immediately, I begin making meaning out of this very visual story.” The Newburyport Art Association presented The 2007 Annual Members Fall Juried Show Part 1 from August 24 to September 16. There were 222 entries from 126 artists, 154 works were selected. For more information, visit www.newburyportart.org/Archive/fallshow07-1/fallshow07.html. Selected for Exhibition
