Juried art show at Olive Hyde Gallery
Submitted By Diane Leys
P. Kay Hille-Hatten's photograph "Mountain Gate" has been selected "Best in Show" at the juried Olive Hyde Gallery Art Guild member show July 15 - August 13. At a time of generic and mass produced items, Kay's mission is to create unique, finely detailed pieces. In addition to photography, Kay has received recognition and awards for her books, printmaking, and jewelry. Local galleries in Los Gatos, Hayward, Fremont, and Concord, as well as others throughout the state, have shown her works.
Noted mosaic artist, sculptor, muralist, painter, and art instructor, Dmitry Grudsky 's watercolor "Ride Nowhere" has been awarded second place. Dmitry's large scale public art works are exhibited nationally and internationally. Recipient of a Master's Degree in Fine Arts from Tashkent Art Institute in Russia, he instructs at the Institute of Mosaic Art in Oakland and other Bay Area locations.
A self-taught artist, Jean Henretty began drawing pictures as a child in Scotland. While recovering from an illness 12 years ago, she began to paint. Initially copying the masters, she has developed her own unique style. She is particularly adept at painting portraits of people and animals. Having worked primarily with oil paints, Jean has been awarded third place for her first portrait, "The Worker," using pastel. Jean has received Best of Show awards at the Fremont Art Association Gallery and the Chocolate Festival in Oakdale, as well as awards in other area art shows.
In addition, the work of three other artists have received Merit Awards: "Blue Heron at Dusk" by quilt artist Ann May, "Adagio" by sculpture artist Robert G. Latin, and "I Think I'm in Trouble," an oil painting by artist Farshid Namei.
