Nancy Kolar of Western Springs won the third prize in the Paint DuPage Art Competition sponsored by The DuPage Art League, with her Pen and Ink and watercolor drawing. Entries came from all over the county in all mediums. A reception and award presentation was held on Sunday and Kolar, who was out of town for the weekend, arrived just in time to receive her award.
The competition was open to members and non-members and the original artwork had to be related to DuPage County whether it was a location in the county or based on an event in the county’s history. Kolar’s drawing was a detailed pen and ink of a group of flowers and foliage and was tinted with watercolor.
