OWENSBORO, KY. (10/1/19) — Awards totaling $5,000 were distributed to artists at the closing Gala of the 12th Annual Bronze Buffalo Festival and Paintout at the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art.

Thirty artists from Kentucky, Ohio, Texas and Indiana entered 68 paintings depicting Owensboro and the surrounding area during the three day paint out and competition Sept. 26-28.

The exhibition was judged by John W. Streetman III, Director Emeritus of the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science.

The paint out is an annual “en plein air” (meaning painting out of doors) event at the local art museum designed to document the sense of place and historical significance of Owensboro and Daviess County, through the visual arts.
