Visitors to gallery of the 2014 Stars of Texas Juried Art Exhibit were asked to cast a vote for the piece to be selected for the People's Choice Award. Sunday was the final day of voting and after officials tallied the votes from the entire week, announced the winner Monday morning. Mary Haan, of Abilene, received the honor for her oil painting entitled "Star Light, Star Bright."
The painting is unique for an oil, in that it is a black and white.
Runners-up, in the order of votes received, were, Robert W. Cook, Granbury, with "Oak Point," Martha Middleton, Brownwood, "Unconditional Love," Colby Compton, Early, "Eye," and Jana Herndon, Abilene, "Midnight Iris."
