Out of those works, judges Jillian Marie Browning (UAB) and Jason Tanner Young (University of Montevallo) selected 55 pieces to be shown in the gallery. From these selected works, Browning and Young made their final selections for Best in Painting, Best in Drawing, Best in Mixed-Media, Best in 3D, Best in Photography and overall Best in Show. There were also two special awards chosen by the SCAC staff; Executive Director’s Choice and Staff Choice Award.  To see the virtual gallery tour, visit the Shelby County Arts Council YouTube channel here.
