Dale Osterle of DeKalb has won the Kent Leasure Memorial Fine Print Award for her hand-colored etching titled, “Winter Magic,” in this year’s GALEX National Art Exhibition & Competition show. The award is sponsored by Blick Art Materials.

Each year, the Galesburg Civic Art Center presents the GALEX show, which started out as a regional art competition and has grown into a national art exhibition and competition now in its 48th year. It is a juried show, so each piece of work accepted into the show has been chosen by a designated judge. This year’s judge is Rima Girnius, a chief curator at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa.  

Fifty-four works by 41 different artists were selected to participate in this show, and a variety of media were represented including oil, watercolor, acrylic, collage, photography, fiber and sculpture.
