These artists came from all over the country and include Abigail Cochran, VA; Jan Kirsh, MD; John Mason, VA; Pokey Park, AZ; Philip Smith, MD; Timothy Spurchise, VA; Kevin Vanek, MS and Carl Wright, WV.
There will be a competition to determine the best sculpture with cash awards totaling more than $4,000.
