Brigid Feasel, a 2013 Olentangy High School graduate, won Best of Show in the fair’s Youth Fine Arts Competition. The award came with recognition and a monetary prize of $220.

Feasel’s winning painting “Teenage Cob Roller” was done using acrylic paints and depicts Olentangy classmate Adam Green eating a hamburger. The painting has won several awards this year including First Place in the Olentangy High School art show. It was also selected for the Ohio Capital Conference Art Show.
