The Red Hills Art Competition was underway in the month of May and paintings, crafts, photos, textiles and ceramics were on display at the Winston County Library through the Red Hills Festival on memorial weekend.

J. Bruce Guraedy was the competition judge. Guraedy received his B.A. in Art at USM in 1973. He did further graduate work at Mississippi College and MSU. He has been an art instructor and Fine Arts Division Chairman at ECCC. Guraedy is a retired freelance artist, and he judges and teaches workshops across the state.

Guraedy said of the competition, “This is a very strong show, demonstrating the diverse artistic skills of the Red Hills Art Association. Louisville and the surrounding area should be proud to have talented people like this in their community.”

There were winners in photography, crafts and painting. Shown below is Angelina Robinson with her winning artwork "White Gladiolus"
