ANNOUNCING…The 2013 Mighty Mo Photo Show and Art in Bloom Exhibit
The Mighty Mo Photo Show is an area photographic competition designed to compliment Yankton’s Annual Riverboat Days celebration and to encourage and recognize the talents of area photographers. Any photographers living in South Dakota, Iowa, or Nebraska are encouraged to participate. There is an “open” theme this year, requiring only that the river or a portion of the river must be in the shot. Photographers may submit up to four photos. All photographic media, techniques, and styles will be accepted. Entries will be judged and YAA will award Best of Show, Honorable Mention, and Promise to Purchase. Entries will be accepted July 8-July 12. The show will open July 19. For further details refer to Exhibit Rules and Entry Form.
The Art in Bloom event will take place July 31-August 5, 2013 at the G.A.R. Gallery in conjunction with the Mighty Mo Photo Show. This event will highlight the talents of local floral designers and garden enthusiasts who are challenged to create arrangements inspired by the photography featured during the annual Mighty Mo Photo Show.
Designers wanting to participate are asked to notify the YAA office (605-665-9754) of their intentions by Monday, July 15. Thereafter, participating designers are invited to the G.A.R. Hall Art Gallery July 19 through July 26 during regular business hours to view the photographic works on display, and then creatively interpret their choice in the arrangement which will remain on display for the four-day event. For further details, please see Exhibit Rules.

The participating group unleashed their artistic abilities under the instruction of visual artist Cheryl Peterson-Halsey, and each participant went home with their personal interpretations of Van Gogh’s “The Tree.”
BELOW…Adults and children took part in the kick off Partner Painting class, also a part of the ARTIST UNLEASHED Fine Art and Fundraiser series. Kids and their accompanying parents and grandparents had fun learning painting technique and color application with instructor Sue Hill, and each partner pair went home with individual masterpieces.
