A sizeable crowd showed up last night for the annual Perry F. Kendig Awards at the Taubman Museum of Art, sponsored by the Arts Council of the Blue Ridge. Among the winners were FRONT co-founders Tom Field (publisher, in black suit) and Dan Smith (editor, in white tux coat) shown here with their wives (Dan's is Christina in blue, Tom's is Emily in black) and with Arts Council Director Laura Rawlings. The Literary Artist award was the first ever given by the Arts Council.
