MISSOURI WATERCOLOR SOCIETY
2015 International Exhibition
Thank you for inviting me to jury the Missouri Watercolor Society Exhibition. It was a privilege and an honor for me to jury this prominent & highly respected exhibition.
I looked at design, technique, style and subject matter but I tried to be equally sensitive to content and concept. I believe this is an excellent and diverse exhibit with art pieces that are imaginative and innovative and depict the diversity of the entrants in subject and style.
Congratulations to all who were selected for this exhibition. I believe it is a remarkable, unified exhibition representing the wide range of excellent work submitted and the vast variety of styles.
Thank you to all who make this wonderful exhibition possible.
Again Congratulations to All!
