Hickory – “Froggy Comes a Courtin’”, a computer photo by L. Michelle Bitler, won the prize, which is a cd: “2021 Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert withFCA’s Wild And Crazy Valentine Show Riccardo Muti”. John Gordon Ross chose the valentine, and also contributed the prize. Mr. Ross said he enjoyed the variety of the show, with themes from sisterly love to a collage of all kinds of kisses.

Other valentine creators are Tereza Bentley, Jackie Finley, Meredith Janssen, Chris Parsons, and Ellen Schwarzbek. It is a small but interesting display, showing a wide range of inventiveness.

The valentines can be seen at Full Circle Arts now to March 6, 2021.
