Annual May Show 2018





The annual open “May Show” debuted at the Hillcrest Center for the Arts, Galleria, this May.

The show was embraced by a crush of enthusiastic artists who were very impressed with the new  venue.  We had first timers, old timers and everyone in between and the work was spectacular. We had 49 artists and 95 pieces of art which were expertly hung by the CRPD staff.


The judges were Pam Fong, Cathy Coleman, Greg Cooper, and Kristi Colell, and were very impressed with the show.  They had a difficult job of choosing the awards but chose these:
