We want to extend a hearty congratulation to CCAL member Kimberly Case. Not only did she win 1st Place in the Photography Division at the 2021 Crooked Creek Art League Juried Show, she has several other exciting wins lately we want to share.
We want to congratulate Kimberly on being being a winner in the 1593 Project and awarded a featured exhibit in the Upstairs Gallery at the Koger Center for the Arts in downtown Columbia. Kudos!

In addition, Kimberly has also received a second place award in the Virtually InFocus Show.
From Kimberly: "I am happy to announce that my self-portrait "In the Time of COVID" won second place in the COVID Perspective division of the InFocus 34th Annual Photography Competition and Exhibition.
Of the 445 entries only 187 were chosen to hang in the show. The competition for this show was amazing; I was honored to be chosen among the outstanding entries submitted. I am proud that both of my entries were accepted into this exhibition; "Winding Down" was also juried into the exhibition."
