Artisans Against Domestic Violence
The Artisans Against Domestic Violence Art Exhibit was a huge success. With over 40 pieces of art entered, the judges had a hard time deciding on the winning entry. First place went to Melissa Seltz for her painting entitled “All She Hides.” Pictures don’t show the words hidden in the mask which can be seen with a magnifying glass. Second place went to Mallory Elder for a series of photographs entitled “Isolation,” “Manipulation,” and “Control.” Third place went to Leslie Brownfield for her painting “Face Everything and Rise.” An honorable mention was given to an untitled painting by Alan Ammon Jr. Guests walked through the exhibit, then enjoyed picnicking on the grounds outside the East Palestine Country Club. The exhibit was funded by Ozer Ministries and the Columbiana County Department of Job and Family Services and sponsored by the East Palestine Country Club.
