Buckhannon Upshur Camera Club presented a “Color My World” themed exhibit in concert with ART26201 at the M.I.B.

The gallery welcomed hundreds of visitors to the exhibit and invited folks to vote for their favorite photograph. The People’s Choice and Best of Show ribbon was awarded to Alan Tucker for his photo, “Blackwater River.” This is the second year in a row that Tucker has pulled off top honors.

Additional Strawberry Royalty ribbons were awarded to Steven Minardi of Rivesville for his “Ram Island Ledge Light,” Vicki Clutter of Wallace for her “Celestial Mist,” Al Tucker for his creative “Car Wash” and “Kay Lake Sunset,” as well as Sandra Miller for her “Old School” photograph.
