West End Window Walk Winners!
It’s a good thing the participants of the 2012 West End Halloween Window Walk painted last week-- we had perfect weather especially on Wednesday and Thursday, sunshine, 70 degrees. It looks like all the windows will have been washed away by Hurricane Sandy by the time Halloween gets here, but that’s okay, the judges got around on Friday morning and had a chance to get a good look at all of them.
The Window Walk is put together by the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce and the Beck Center with the participation of Detroit Avenue businesses and sponsors. This year the sponsors were: The Security Hut, The Designer Consignor, Riverwood Cafe, Donatos Pizza, Dewey's Pizza, Westside Family Dental, and Max Tan.
An Artist Awards Ceremony and Reception was held at the Beck Center this past Saturday. The reception featured punch, cookies, and a lot of candy. The artists get to mix with their public and discuss the inspiration for their ideas.
The winners this year were Julia Kompier, K-2(at Max Tan), Julia Szentkiralyi and Mariana Stockman, 3-5 (at Dewey's Pizza), Maya Sutliff, 6-8 (At Max Tan), and Fallon Horvath and Jacob Corder, 9-12 (At Dairy Queen), Tim Britton in the Adult Category (At Riverwood Cafe) The Constantine Family, Family Category (Beck Center Creative Arts Building) and Girl Scout Troop 226, Group Category! (Pink Lotus Yoga).
The Honorable Mention winners: Grace Gray (K-2, at Lakewood Furnace), Maxine Mayer-Mack (3-5, at Donatos), Jennifer Meyer (6-8, at Max Tan), Gabby Wise (9-12, at Cozumel), The Vargas Family (Family, at Pug Mahone's), The New B's Soccer Team (Group, at the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce), and Amira Fattah (Adult, at Harry Buffalo).
