Judge of Selection and Awards:

Enjoy Anne Abgott's statement on each of the medal winner

Juror Statement:

I believe that my job as a juror was to assemble a collection of paintings that represents the broadest and most varied spectrum of the entries.  I want to congratulate everyone who was accepted.  It was very tough to narrow 100 paintings from the 466 submitted! 

I looked for strong design and composition, repetition of color and shape.  I especially appreciated the creativity and originality of many of the entries.  Style and technique are very important, but I like to see the hand of the artist in the painting.  Just recording the facts from a photo reference should not take the place of personal interpretation.

To everyone who did not get accepted into the show, please don’t be discouraged.  Kudos for putting yourself out there!  Thank you to the Baltimore Watercolor Society for asking me to judge this show.  I truly enjoyed it!  Congratulations to all the award winners.

Anne Abgott AWS,NWS   

Here are her comments on the Gold, Silver and Bronze paintings:

Gold Medal - Sydni Reubin - PROJECTION

Simply wonderful in its simplicity! The painting evoked an emotion in the message it sent. The shapes and sizes of the large squares make it difficult but the artist made it “work”!

Silver Medal - David Outhwaite - ROCKS AT ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, MAINE

A powerful focal point!  There is no doubt where the artist wants me to look. Beautiful technique rendered in a quiet thoughtful way.

Bronze Medal - William Jaeger - ERUPTION

A Floral! A most unusual flower painting.  Along with the technique, color and composition this becomes an ABSTRACT. It breaks the rules of even numbers, but creates beautiful negative shapes.  A stunning piece!
