Art lovers, residents and vacationers all basked in the spring-like weather at the 31st Annual Springfest Fine Art and Craft juried art show presented by the Anna Maria Island Art League and held in Holmes Beach City Park. Over the years, Springfest has been an attraction because it is a rare juried art show that includes a children’s competition.

Martin Figlinski’s oil paintings took the Best in Show; Kelly Williamson, ceramics and pottery, and Tracy Womack’s jewelry won awards of distinction; merit awards went to John Cheer’s clay sculpture, AJ and Jack Ferrell’s mixed media and Kristen Coffman’s jewelry.
