Both Drury and Barhaug received multiple awards.

The Cody Country Art League’s June 19 reception and open house featured a display of entries and award presentations. The entries were judged by Northwest College art educator Anne Toner, who selected first, second and honorable mention winners for each category.

Cash awards from the art league were presented to first and second place winners, as well as "Best of Show" for both adult and youth entrants. Showing strong community support for the art show, individuals and businesses selected and handed out another 15 cash prizes known as Sponsor Awards.

The show remains on display at the Cody Country Art League, 836 Sheridan Avenue in Cody, through July 24. Most entries are available for purchase.
