2016 National Road Festival Juried Art Exhibition

People’s Choice Award

The people have spoken! Congratulations to artist Mary Elaine Lozosky, the recipient of the 2016 National Road Festival Juried Art Exhibition People’s Choice Award for her oil painting titled “John L. Lewis”. The image of John L. Lewis is a familiar one to generations of area residents. Mr. Lewis was president of the United Mine Workers from 1920 - 1960. The portrait uses bold colors and abstract shapes in contrast to the realistic depiction of Lewis, including his trademark “power” eyebrows. The award included an original drawing of a coal tipple by Frank L. Melega. John L. Lewis was also the subject of artworks by Mr. Melega. Special thanks to reporter Christopher Buckey and photographer John F. Brothers for their Herald-Standard article on the show.
