Every year, the Art League of Marion chooses one exhibitor at Hungry Mother Festival to receive the award of Best in Show. The Best in Show recipient of the 44th Annual Hungry Mother Festival (July 2017) is Dana Godsey from Crab Orchard, TN!
Dana’s primitive stitchery and artwork was wonderfully displayed in antique suitcases and vegetable crates. Antique fabric and other antique sewing items drew visitors into her booth. Her handcrafted frames contain prints of her artwork and that of her late mother. Parts of well-loved quilts also find a place in her artwork.
Congratulations to Dana on winning Best in Show!
