FALLBROOK – Twenty-six artists entered this year’s “Remembering 9/11/2001” art contest with one entry coming from New York City. This was the second annual competition, held at Brandon Gallery, with the public voting for the first through third place awards and three special awards given.

Competition founder Phyllis Sweeney and her Encouragement Factor presented a merit award as did the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce while event sponsor Fallbrook Propane named a Merrill Everett Award winner.

A total of 154 votes were cast and 74 people attended the reception on Sept. 10 at the gallery. The entries are on display through Sept. 29, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Brandon Gallery, 105 N. Main Ave.
