A Monroeville artist won the 2018 Eastern Suburban Artists League Members Show “Best of Show” award.
Pamela Price, of Monroeville, won the award for her piece entitled “The Sea Goddess,” which will be on display in the entrance hall of the Community College of Allegheny County Boyce campus, at 595 Beatty Road, through Sept. 7.
Price was one of three Monroeville residents who won awards. There were five artists from Murrysville who were awarded for their artwork and nine others from various communities also received awards.
