HURLEY— The Range Art Association’s Art Show was judged on Thursday night by John McFaul, an award winning wildlife artist who has adopted Ironwood as his hometown.

McFaul has had over 75 solo exhibitions in galleries throughout the United States, and his original works are featured in private and corporate collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Judging the 58th art show of the RAA provided McFaul with a way to get more involved in the local art community, he said.

Next year’s show may be held on Labor Day weekend, said event organizer Gail Kniska.
