Redstone artists draw worldwide recognition
International Army Arts and Crafts contest produces 14 local winners
By AMY GUCKEEN
As a student, Linda Morton's art teacher gave her an "A" for her quiet demeanor – and told her to never take an art class again. She had no talent.
The 2009 Army Arts and Crafts Contest would beg to differ.
Morton received third place in the contest for her water-based painting "Brake Wheel," joining fellow Redstone winner Leslie Wood, who received third place in fibers and textiles, mixed media 3D and metal and jewelry, and seven others from the installation. More than 490 pieces of art from Army installations across the world were entered. The contest was open to deployed Soldiers, as well as Guard and Reserve Soldiers, civilians and family members, according to Jean Neal, program analyst with FMWRC-Community Recreation in San Antonio.
"Contest judges, professionals in arts and crafts fields, commented on the high degree of talent and inspiration in the contest entries," Neal said.
