Lawrence resident, formerly of Great Bend, and fossil hunter Alan Detrich won a $200 cash prize in the 2016 Smoky Hill Art Exhibition sponsored by the Hays Arts Commission. His work consisted of a bronze Bible decorated with gold leaf and dinosaur bones. Great Bend artists also accepted in to the show, but not receiving awards, were Steve Dudek, Karole Erikson, Jay Miller and Diane Engle. The annual exhibition is a statewide juried fine art competitive open to any artist currently living in Kansas. Any original 2-D or 3-D works completed in the last two years (and not previously exhibited at the Hays Arts Center) are eligible. A total of $2,750 in cash prizes were be awarded at the jurors discretion. This years juror was Mark Hartman. The exhibition will open as the anchor of the Hays Spring Art Walk tonight. Hundreds of pieces of art will be displayed from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at over 30 locations throughout Hays. For a complete list of the stops, visit or call 785-625-7522. - photo by COURTESY PHOTO
