The Southern Indiana Center for the Arts in Seymour announced the winners from its annual judged art competition and exhibit, which was held this month.

Artist Maureen O’Hara Pesta of Vallonia was named best in show for her pastel work, “Pottery Barn SICA: Working With Clay.”

In the adult category, Pam Bell of Bedford won first place for her piece “Not Too Crabby,” and Jeff Jackson of Hope secured second place for his piece “Shaeffer’s Pond.”

In the youth category, 12-year-old McKindree Johnson of Austin took first place with his multimedia piece “Mysteries of the Deep,” while 7-year-old Olivia Reinhart took second for her piece “Tea With Friends.”

All winners received cash prizes donated by Edward Jones Financial Advisors of Seymour.

The pieces will be on display at SICA through Nov. 4. Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free. The pieces will then be loaned to public spaces and businesses around Jackson County, where they will remain on display for a year.
