The results are in and the top three photographs of SNA’s “Streets of Summit” contest are here.
They are: First Place – Snow Fun by Douglas Itkin; Second Place – Mike Bryce, Local Artist by Barbara Leach; and Third Place – Scorching Summer Music by Dylan Itkin.
The contest, the brainchild of SNA board member Joan Retsinas, asked for pictures of favorite people, places or things in the Summit and Mount Hope neighborhoods and there were 11 photos submitted. They were judged by Lisa Newby, a picture editor and page designer at The Providence Journal, and Steve Mason, a professional photographer. Cash prizes were awarded to the top three finishers and gift certificates to local photo stores went to the four honorable mentions.
All of the pictures will be on public display during Miriam Hospital’s Gallery Night, Tuesday, July 29, starting at 6 p.m. when refreshments will be available in the Hurvitz conference room.
The Summit pictures are included in a presentation on the hospital’s extensive collection of Judaic art, especially “The Seven Festivals” by David Sharir, in Heritage Hall dedicated to Miriam’s Jewish roots and culture.
There will various experts on hand to discuss the display, including Carl Smith, who was instrumental in reinstalling the body of work donated to the hospital.
All of Miriam’s neighbors are invited to the free evening event.
