Todd Sherwood won Best of Show with his first place photo in the Travel & Architecture category.

On First Friday, Feb. 1, Tehachapi Valley Arts Association celebrated the creative talents of Tehachapi's local photographers with a reception featuring over 125 entries by 55 photo enthusiasts. With photos ranging from playful fuzzy otters to stunning photo journalistic masterpieces, there was certainly something to capture the attention of everyone in the room.

Proceeds from the contest will help fund high school scholarships for students pursuing the arts, as well as art supplies for local classrooms.

TVAA would like to thank everyone who participated and those who came to celebrate the artists.
