“Mi Cuba,” in the nonprofessional other media category, took second in the Boone County Art Show and was crafted by Ashley Anderson. The show was open to Boone County residents, Columbia Art League members and full-time college students in Boone County.

Round, spherical, rotund and curved defines some of the artwork on display at the Boone County Art Show on Sept. 23 and 24. Spectators could view a vast variety of Boone County artists’ work; many of the pieces were eye-catching and unusual. Those walking on the sidewalk outside of Boone County National Bank were greeted by a gigantic sculpture that couldn’t fit inside with the rest of the gallery.

The categories were: professional painting, professional drawing, professional other media, nonprofessional painting, nonprofessional drawing, nonprofessional other media, sculpture, ceramics and fiber.

At the end of the award ceremony the peculiar works of art were quickly gathered and ushered away, transforming the bank back to its normal self — except for a few select winners, which the bank will display through October.
