This past Sunday the halls of the Bayside Historical Society at Fort Totten Park were filled with artworks honoring artistic talent for the group’s 13th annual art show, “A Celebration of the Arts.” The art will be on display until Jan. 26.
The show was also a competition for the more than 30 participants, each of whom was allowed to submit a maximum of two pieces.
State Sen. Tony Avella awarded certificates, ribbons and small monetary prizes to the winners. First prize went to artist Diana DeSantis of Whitestone for her pastel portrait entitled “John.” Dianne Menna and Morley Wang, also of Queens, won second and third place, respectively.
