HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Thirty-eight of the Valley's most talented artists have pieces on display at Larkin Arts as part of the annual Juried Art Show.

This year, the show received 130 pieces for submission, almost three times more than last year.

Valerie Smith, the owner of Larkin Arts and one of the judges this year, said they got submissions from places as far away as Richmond.

She also said people at the show voted on what they thought was the best.

The painting in this article was the favorite and it was done by a JMU student.

Smith says little things like this make the job so rewarding.

"I can't imagine how that would feel as a college student receiving such a high honor. I'm sure that that will just help motivate her in the future," said Smith.

Smith said they've taken pictures of all the pieces and made a booklet of the work.

She said one of the most exciting parts is that JMU is going to include this catalog in their permanent collection.
