Williamson wins at state, advances
Artist Margie Williamson of Pecos was notified recently by
Francis Dunn, Western District President of the Texas
Federation of Women's Clubs, that she was the recipient of
two first place honors in the Fine Arts Division of the Arts
and Crafts Show held in conjunction with the 101st Annual
Spring Convention of Texas Federation of Women's Clubs held
in Amarillo in May.
Williamson gleaned one of the awards with a watercolor
landscape color painting of quails in snow entitled, "We'll
Have To Hunt." The other win was for color photography in
the Scenic Category with a shot of the Pecos River at
Sixteen Mile Dam entitled, "The Pecos On A January Day."
The national competition will be held later this month in
New Orleans, La., at the 107th Annual Convention of the
General Federation of Women's Clubs. Art works that qualify
for sale and advancement are limited to 11X14 inch size
because of the limited space for display at the meeting and
the difficulty in handling and transporting the art.
Williamson won third place in national competition in 1992
with a watercolor landscape and had also won the "Bright Of
America" award for color photography in national show,
She has had numerous Best of Show Awards but she says she is
perhaps more pleased with the one she won in the Odessa Art
Association Show several years ago because not only was the
competition stiff but she was very pleased with her
rendering of the painting and it's subject matter. Entitled,
"God's Foundation," the pastel landscape features an old
structure, a country church.
The artist, her husband, Tommy, and their four sons, moved
to Pecos in 1970 from Ralls where they had made their home
for 16 years. Tommy is a Ralls native and Margie grew up in
the Big Four Community North of Crosbyton.
