Juror’s statement

The paintings created by the artists of the Baltimore Watercolor Society for this exhibition at the Towson Art Collective display significant artistic accomplishment. With respect for the diversity of subject and style and with admiration, I applaud the achievement often illusive with aqueous media. Working in watercolor is often trivialized by members of an unknowing public. Dabbling in watercolors is a misnomer. The Signature Artists the BWS rise to the challenge of depicting layers of luminosity, depth and clarity of color and display great imagination.

Along with demonstrable skill, the paintings I selected for recognition embody fluidity and emotional points of view. They offer sense of place, imbue energy which transports the viewer within or beyond inner and outer worlds.
