Art show winners honored by church

Winning entries in the River Community Church’s second annual Art Extravaganza were honored Sunday during a reception at the church.

Thirty-two photographs and art entries from area artists ages 5 to 13 were displayed in the show.

The show was judged by Karin Rittvo, an elementary school art teacher in the East Baton Rouge Parish school system, a release from the church says.

Receiving first-place ribbons were:

  • Art, ages 5-9 group: Henry Magee
  • Art, ages 10-13 group: Emily Bush
  • Photography, ages 5-9 group: Charity Campbell
  • Photography, ages 10-13 group: Anneliese Smith

The exhibit will be on display through May 12 at the church, 36367 Old Perkins Road, Prairieville. Viewing will be on Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and also by appointment.
