Winners at the 93rd Annual Spring Salon

“After the Dance” by Howard Lyon

The Springville Museum of Art has announced the prizes for their 93rd annual Spring Salon. The top prizes draw from the three genres of classical painting: figure, still-life and landscape. Howard Lyon, of American Fork, took the first-place prize with a nostalgic painting in the manner of fin-de-siecle (19th siecle, that is) Academy painting, of a girl lounging on an armchair in vibrant contrasts of teal and carmine. Leslie Duke, of Springville, followed with an atmospheric still life, and Michael Workman cleaned up in third with a detailed landscape view of Helper in winter.

Additionally, six Awards of Merit were presented –
