“What Now?” an acrylic work by Stephen Reese, of Patrick Springs, was named Best-in-Show for the JEB Stuart Art Show.
Merit Awards were presented to Darlene Swain, Sandra Eliassen, Charles Pinkard, Sr. and Linda Park.

Awards were presented in six categories, as well as more than $2,000 in prizes and money.

The show was judged by Linda Beroth of Walnut Cove, N.C., an oils and acrylics artist and teacher.

This was the first year that the show did not include photography, which will instead be showcased in its own judged exhibition in November and December.
