The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena presented its annual Visual Art Award and the Performing Art Awards at its year-end banquet held Monday, June 7 at the Athenaeum, Caltech, in Pasadena.
The Visual Art Award was presented by Susanne Belcher, chair of the awards committee, to Marina Hajek of Pasadena. Hajek was eligible to participate in the Fine Arts Club award as a student enrolled in art classes at Pasadena City College. She was selected to receive the monetary award by a jury of art professors at the Community College. Her work in sculpting which garnered the award was on display for banquet attendees. Mrs. Hajek was handed a check for $1,500 from Belcher.
Performing Arts honorees were selected following an audition of student violin and piano teams. The audition drew several dozen musician teams to California State University, Northridge, where they were judged by professors David Aks and Donald Goodman of the college's Music Department.
