Ribbons were awarded at the First Friday’s reception on July 2 by Sandy Manning. Sandy is a member of the Jury Team for exhibiting artists at the RAL Art Center and is a local art educator. Her background in art includes stained glass, printmaking, photography, watercolors, ceramics, jewelry-making, quilting, and graphic design. Her greatest joy is to be able to provide opportunities for celebrating the creativity and skill of Lancaster County’s youth artists.
