Awards & Judge’s Comments


'Four Jars of Summer', watercolor by Tim Colyer

Tim Colyer – “Four Jars of Summer”, watercolor/gouache.
“The softness of the colors along with the contrasts make this work an outstanding watercolor. The artist has a keen sense of observation to detail that shows their appreciation of history, age and delicacy.”


'After the Race', watercolor by Beverley Felter

First Place: Beverley Felter – “After the Race”, watercolor.
“After my first pass through the exhibit, I kept coming back to this painting. Although BMX bikes usually evoke a sense of play, the dark tones evoke a tension and sense of danger. Who are the riders and where did they go? Plus the handling of paint is just remarkable.”

'Tui Bird', watercolor by Evanna Morris

Second Place: Evanna Morris – “Tui Bird”, watercolor.
“This luminous and glistening painting captivated me with its exotic subject and dynamic composition. The stunning colors and depiction of the bird made me think that it could be in the realm of James Audobon but in a more contemporary style.”

'Rancher Burt', watercolor by Kay Walker

Third Place: Kay Walker – “Rancher Burt”, watercolor.
“Portraiture in any medium is challenging. In watercolor it’s even more difficult and unforgiving. The subtle monochromatic folds and wisps of the denim and clouds contrasted with the skin tones and brown suede like hat, make it a triumph even in its small scale. From his warm and approachable likeness, the figure looks like someone reliable and whose company is fun and spirited.”

Honorable Mention:
Christi Hetrick – “Four Bridges”, oil on linen canvas.
Karen Frattali – “Pears for Thee & One for Me”, watercolor.
Amy Groff – “Stand Tall”, oil.

'Rigged & Ready', watercolor by Steve Weinhold

First Place: Steve Weinhold – “Rigged & Ready”, watercolor.
“In this painting the artist took their time to capture minute details in the rope, water and fixtures. The sense of tension is cearly communicated and the sense of drama and narrative is mysterious and intriguing.”

'Leaving Home', marble sculpture by Glenn Wenger

Second Place: Glenn Wenger – “Leaving Home”, marble.
“Walking around the stone sculpture, you can see the level of care that the artist has taken with such a heavy material to make it seem light and gravity defying. Both the negative and positive spaces create a sense of movement and balance.”

'Luxembourg Thistle', watercolor by Sherell Morris

Third Place: Sherell Morris – “Luxenbourg Thistle”, watercolor.
“By the attention to light, color, space and depth , the artist has illustrated their appreciation of nature which is inspiring. The abstract realism of the scene is both powerful and ethereal.”

Honorable Mention:
Carol E. Runge – “Blue Evening”, pastel.
Carolyn Sands – “Everglades Mosaic”, acrylic.
Isabel W. Lark – “An Hour with Sean”, pastel.
