An Auburn artist took home an honor from a statewide competition. Anthony Maki Gill was one of 39 artists from all over the state to have pieces on display in the California Clay Competition Exhibit at the Artery in Davis. On Friday night Gill, 42, received the Best of Show award for his piece “Cheap Signaling.” On Monday Maki Gill said he was “still sort of shocked but enjoying the moment.” Gill is a Placer High graduate and said the school’s art department had a huge impact on who he is as an artist. ~Staff report
