Jury of Selection

 

Barbara Buer AWS, NWS - “The exceptional color of one special flower or the interesting shadows cast by the intricate cuts in a crystal vase are all it takes to entice me into another painting.” 

 

  Barbara Buer has written many articles for magazines and instructional books.  Her work can be found in “Produce Moods by Dramatic Contrast”, “Splash! America’s Best Contemporary Watercolors”, “The Best of Flower Painting”, “The Best of Flower Painting 2”, The Acrylic Painter Book of Style & Techniques”, and Ultra-realism: Acrylic as Transparent Watercolor”.  Her paintings are part of many corporate collections.  Barbara teaches advanced painting techniques in watercolor and fluid acrylic.

 

 

Larry Lombardo, NWS, BWS, PWS - Larry was featured in two national magazines in 2006. He is one of 23 Pennsylvanian artists to hold a Signature Membership in National Watercolor Society and has won over 40 awards since 2001.  His passion is photo-realism, and has been collected by a United States Senator, as well as many others. He currently teaches at MAC, and holds workshops throughout central PA.  Larry was included in Watercolor Magic magazine (02/07) “26 Best Watermedia Paintings of 2006”.

 

 

Carole Pickle AWS, NWS - “My bold, immediate sweep of line and paint results in intuitive, gestural paintings.  The strong thrust of my marks creates a sense of movement.   In some ways my paintings are an abstraction from nature.  They are not not descriptive, literal, or narrative, nor do they work as a direct translation. They are visual experiences that go beyond words to create a harmony of feelings, gesture, intuition and passion.” 

 

  Carole received her B.S. Degree in Art Education from Millersville University.  Recipient of many awards, her works are included in the permanent collections of Millersville University and Lynchburg College.  Publications include American Artist Magazine (08/02) “Intuitive Painting”, and Watercolor Magic (02/05)“The Best Watercolor Paintings of 2004”.

 

Judge of Awards

 

Jim McFarlane AWS, PWCS, PWS - “The most important thing to me when selecting subject matter is that the image is composed of shapes that I can make into an interesting design. Once I have selected a subject, the enjoyable part of the creative process begins and I am free to experiment with color, key, and mood. I hope to initially attract the viewer with how I’ve portrayed the image; but it is with the more abstract qualities of the painting, its spatial design, color harmonies and painterly brushwork, that I hope to hold them.”

 

  James has served on the Board of Directors and as president of the Philadelphia Water Color Society and Greater Norristown Art League.  McFarlane teaches watercolor painting at Woodmere Art Museum, Greater Norristown Art League.
