“As an artist who has traveled to shows from California to Connecticut, it is so refreshing to have this little gem of a show right in my backyard. The organizers are enthusiastic, helpful and dedicated to making this a good show for everyone involved. We have strong support from locals and visitors alike. And, of course, I especially appreciate the meaningful cash awards for best in show- many thanks to the sponsors who make that possible,” said Lisa LeMair.
