With over 250 spectacular artists on the boardwalk, we don't know how the judges picked their favorites! // Congratulations to the Virginia Beach original, @skeleartart Jeff Sheely, for taking home 1st Place in the 2017 Neptune Festival Art & Craft Show with his piece The Last Rider. // Notes from the judge: This mixed media work consists of a figure that depicts raw human emotion where animals are proxies for these emotions. Patterns, lines, and text add to the frenetic and spontaneous feel // For all Art & Craft Show winners, visit our website - www.neptunefestival.com
