“Each year, I celebrate Arts Month by working hard to get my work out of my studio and onto the walls of local arts venues to share it with the public,” local artist Cory Bilicko said. “This burgeoning art lover, during my recent show at the October 2 First Fridays Art Walk, stared at this painting of mine for so long, my friends and I were able to take about 50 pictures of her.” Cory won a $50 gift certificate to Patricia’s Mexican Restaurant for sharing this.
