Local artist Jean Cross, whose husband Dan is the sales manager for Gladding, McBean, won first place in a photo competition. Her photo was taken in Bar Harbor, Maine, when the couple was there for the National Clay Pipe Institute meetings. It is of a restaurant specializing in lobster and the outside is covered with lobster buoys that are colored differently to represent the different fishermen. Her photo won an award of $150 and was chosen for the cover of Pacific Update, the company magazine for Pacific Coast Building Products. Cross said the judges felt “the photo’s subject matter was unique (to those of us on the opposite side of the country) and the composition was outstanding.”
