|Storms of War: Homage to Hudson's Veterans, Mona Turner|
I find Mona's tribute to war veterans poetic and poignant. She was assigned a difficult topic and responded brilliantly. Here is her statement about the piece:
"When the storms of war blew across Europe, Hudsonites answered the call. Twenty-five soldiers lost their lives in WWI and another twenty-five in WWII. The Canada Geese represent those who were lost."

|Reflections, Judith Harvey|
|Pleasure Boating, Susan Snelgrove|
Using acrylic paint in sepia and grey tones, and acrylic gel "skins", Susan Snelgrove explored the role of pleasure boating in Hudson, focusing on the Hudson Yacht Club and its activities on the Lake of Two Mountains.
All the artists are to be congratulated for rising to the occasion with their thoughtful and thought-provoking work.
