Betty Ganley of Great Falls won first place for ‘The Tented Lady.’ Her mother. Margaret Kenney, holds her award.

Every year since its inception 40 years ago, the Vienna Arts Society (VAS) has featured the best of regional artists in a juried “Treasury of Art Show.” To celebrate its 40th anniversary this year, VAS threw a three-day gala at the Vienna Community Center at which the exhibits were augmented by music and hors d’oeuvres.

First place award at the show went to Betty Ganley of Great Falls for her “The Tented Lady” painting. A sailboat sits at low tide docked at a wharf in Maine, images reflected on the water.
