Three Hall County residents won $500 for their creative entry to the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens.
Their creative product is published in a collectible hardbound volume, “The Kress Project” book. Contest rules were to create an original response to one of the artworks of the Italian Renaissance Kress Collection at the museum.
Three adult Gainesville winners were:
* Alison Reeger Cook for “The Saintly Stew,” a humorous short story and a culinary recipe to represent the saints.
