Organizers said the 17th Annual Juried Art Show—held at the Springfield Public Library—was a big success, with many visitors and kind words of appreciation and amazement at the wide variety of art. Windschitl’s oil painting, titled "Painted Lady" garnered the most votes from visitors to the show, earning a prize of $150. The 2017 show had thirty-nine artists entered, with a total of ninety-nine pieces on display. Two hundred-eighty people signed the guest book. After a judge's review, prizes were announced at the reception and opening of the art show on Oct. 18.
