Brytani Lobendo Wins Best of Show at WIC Art Festival!

May 04, 2017

Underwood High School hosted the 2017 Western Iowa Conference Art Festival.  Of the hundreds of entries, "Blossoms," a mixed media work done by Underwood Senior Brytani Lobendo, was named this year's Best of Show.  The judges had these comments about the piece:
"This piece was a very large painted canvas of a tree at dusk with three different colored light sources in the distance with clay relief flower blossoms of various sizes on the right side.  Her art work was creatively done with a strong impact and visual appeal.  It was well composed and constructed.  The painting quality and use of blended colors with shading made for a very pleasing artistic display."  
Brytani's name will be added to the plaque of other WIC Best of Show winners.  She is the first Underwood winner since Ashley Herring won the award in 2011 and only the second winner from Underwood since the award began in 1989.  Congratulations, Brytani!
