And the Winners Are . . .

Celebrate Fremont People Choice Award Winners

Margaret Thornberry, Nancy Pratt, Angela Villegas, Alvin Dockter, and Sue Chan

Presentation of Award Winners before Fremont City Council

One of the most popular exhibits at Celebrate Fremont @ the Park was the Art Pavillion. If you stopped by the 'Art, Not 4 Sale' tent, you saw the work of some wonderful local sculptors, painters, photographers, fabric artists and ceramicists - there was art galore!

Attendees met and chatted with the artists and voted for their favorite artist's work. No hanging chads or questionable ballots - although the votes were close, the winners are:

1st place - Angela Villegas, for her acrylic painting of the A's;

2nd place - Nancy Pratt, for her watercolor scenes of early Fremont

3rd place - Alvin Dockter, for his black and white photograph of Bird Island at Lake Elizabeth

Our People's Choice awardwinners were honored during the October 3 Fremont City Council meeting with a presentation by Creative Engagement Co-Chair Margaret Thornberry and Vice Chair, Sue Chan.

Congratulations Angela, Nancy, and Alvin!
