"The Highliners," a color photograph by Robert Sachs of Norwalk, was awarded Best in Show for the Photography & Sculpture exhibition that opened June 3 at the Rowayton Arts Center. "The composition, color and detail are really wonderful," said photographer-teacher Jane McWhorter, who selected the winning artwork from 37 photography entries and six sculptures. "I feel that the four people are totally isolated from each other while still occupying the same space. The artist captured a very 'city' moment when people in a public place can be completely uninvolved with anyone but themselves."

The Color Photography winners are: 1st - Shavkat Inagamov (New York City), who was selected as a new RAC exhibiting member in May, 2nd - Marcy Juran (Westport), and 3rd - Gaile Ramey (Branford). Black & White Photography awards went to: 1st - Shamik Ganguly (Stamford) and 2nd - Tony Velez (Norwalk). Pierre Lahaussois (Rowayton) is the first place Sculpture winner.
