Brenda Lyness has won Best in Show at the at the Barnes and Noble Winter Show of the PAA (Penfield Art Association).  The title,  “The Erosion of Faith, Hope, and Charity” (mixed media) featured the faces of three women with a veil of transparent, dripping charcoal over their faces, as if, Faith, Hope and Charity were eroding. Brenda was inspired to create this piece when she was moved by the 2017 turmoil in our country, and personally experienced the erosion of basic kindness and respect in our culture.
