Juror's Statement

Joanna Barnum

pasted-movie.pngIt was a pleasure to judge the awards for this year's Pennsylvania Watercolor Society Online Members Show. I enjoyed spending time with your work, reveling in the breadth of styles, subjects, and moods watermedia is capable of conveying, as well as the personal viewpoints and passions of each artist. In selecting award winners, I looked for pieces that demonstrated not only technical excellence within the artist's chosen vocabulary, but also a sense of the artist's fascination with their subject.

It is both an honor and a tremendous responsibility to be asked to judge one's fellow artists. Congratulations to the award winners, but also to all who chose to share their work. Above all else, to be an artist is, simply, to create work with sincerity again and again, and to be brave enough to share it with others in whatever way you can. So please keep painting and keep sharing, the world needs your art.
