Don’t Cry For Me Oniontina
Six FSWS artists painted their own interpretations of one photo of four common yellow onions. Their uncommon paintings were the highlight of our annual meeting & luncheon in March. Not wanting to miss out on the fun, we organized a special summer event – Don’t Cry For Me Oniontina – making the original onion photo available to all of you. Another two dozen FSWS artists took the onion challenge, and all of these paintings are on view now through August 23rd at the Bradenton Central Library, at 1301 Barcotta Ave, Bradenton, FL 34205. (Best access is from the parking lot in the rear.)
Voluntary donations of $5 – $7 allowed us to award some prizes & ribbons. We thank our judges Jacquie Clark, Libit Jones and Roger Rockefeller (3 of the original “onion painters”) from the member’s luncheon entertainment.
