"I am very proud to have been encouraged by Chris, Lynne and Lou to enter the Mollie Fearing Memorial Art Show,” said Best In Show award recipient Julien McCarthy. “I am even prouder to have won Best in Show amidst such a stellar display of artistic talent. I am grateful to all who work to support the Arts Council and its activities."
