Best of Show, "Reese" by Andra Crossland
1st Place, "Preppy Pete" by Caroline Van Trease
2nd Place, "Hiker Hank" by Lauren Mitchell
3rd Place, "Hope" by Loretta Salazar
The El Paso Knitting Guild, which meets monthly in the Crossland Gallery, had a needlework contest. Participating members created knitted clothing for teddy bears. Anyone who visited the gallery was encouraged to vote on the best-dressed bear. The winning bear is Reese. All of the bears will be presented to the El Paso Police Department to give to children in crisis. This is a joint venture of the El Paso Knitting Guild, the El Paso Police Department, and the El Paso Art Association. Bears are on display at the El Paso Library Branch on Redd Road on the westside through July. Stop by and see all of the bears!
