Artists earn recognition at Midnight Madness

 By Josh Beavers

 Cultural Crossroads hosted Midnight Madness, its second annual Halloween art contest and exhibit, on Saturday night.

 Artists were invited to submit spooky works of art, to either be judged for a cash prize or simply for the viewing enjoyment of the public.

 A formal reception was held where artists had a chance to sell their art. Awards were also given.

 There were two age categories that had participants: Crypt Keepers (19+) & Teen Wolves (13-18).

 For Crypt Keepers, Chris Broussard won first place for “Sallie Baker Still Lives.”

 For Teen Wolves:

-1st place, Layla Garrett for “Ravens”

-2nd place, Isabelle Beckman for “New Orleans Haunted House”

-3rd place, Aubrey Gorman for “Headless Horseman”

 In addition to the art show, there was also a spooky haunted house that was well attended.

 This event was sponsored by R&V Works and Mike’s Hometown Spirits of Minden.
