The new, and tradition, came together Sunday for the 31st annual Arty awards gala.
For the first time in its history, the awards were presented in Vacaville. In addition to Solano County arts groups, Napa County cast and crew members were honored for the first time.
The event also honored a Solano County trio of arts staples – singer Connie Lisec, actor-director Harry Diavatis and choreographer Sheri Stockdale.
A bevy of awards were handed out amid music interludes, some comedy, compliments of Taylor Bartolucci, and a knock-out solo from Tyler Bertani singing a song from “Urinetown, the Musical.”
