On this date in 1964, the Long Beach Independent reported the winners of Seal Beach Artists League’s fifth annual Mosaic Show. Beth Willie of La Habra won the top prize for her contemporary panel, “The Seventh Day.” First award for a representational panel went to Ardith Addous for “Miracle of the Seagulls.” First place prizes also went to William Walker in the decorative panels category and Jim Abrecht in the round objects category.
