Fairfax Station artist, Lynn Goldstein was selected to receive the Best-in-Show award for her painting, "Facing West-On Stage," at the national exhibition, "Shades of Pastel," in Frederick, Md. The presentation of awards took place on Saturday, Nov. 2 at the Delaplaine Visual Arts and Education Center, where the painting will be on view until Dec. 1.
The judge of the exhibition was Jimmy Wright, a well-known artist whose works have been exhibited (among others) at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. In choosing Goldstein's painting, Wright stated that, "There was no doubt which painting would be given the Best-in-Show award when I saw this piece hanging in the gallery."
Goldstein, a Northern Virginia artist who has a studio in her home and at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, has shown her work in various locations locally, nationally and internationally, most notably in Dinan, France where she completed a one-month artist residency in 2011. Goldstein recently returned from Southern France where she taught a workshop in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.
