AWARDS and Juror’s comments:

Best in Show

Janet Picard, Still Life with Anthurium, oil

This delightful painting is the embodiment of abundance. With joie de vivre, it pulsates with energy, drawing the viewer in. Its complementary color palette combined with a myriad of patterns and textures create a harmonic symphony that is pleasing to the eye as well as the senses.

Best Figure/Portrait

Lesley Breen, Ruth, digital painting

Bold, graphic, direct, the immediacy of this image is captivating, engaging and conceptually strong. Great execution with a wonderful likeness.

Best Landscape

Robert Steedman, Iced In, watercolor

Atmospherically beautiful, this masterful painting blends softly defined wet-on-wet washes with distinct shapes to create a lovely scene. The juxtaposition of lush darks with the white of the paper captures the essence of the day.

Best Three-dimensional Art

Robert Scutt, The Dancer, oak wood, $750

The undulating form of this elegant, free-standing sculpture is a pleasure to view. It is tall, regal, smooth and sensual. The highly polished wooden surface gleams and its overall essence communicates rhythm, movement and dance.

Best Still Life

Yael Zakon-Bourke, Afternoon Delight, oil

The narrative quality of this painting is intriguing. Compositionally, its tight crop and intimate gaze capture and amplify a fleeting moment in time, communicating more than what’s being portrayed.

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

Deborah Alavosius, Off Season Twilight, acrylic

This is an exceptional painting! From the details on the buildings to the textures of the trees, this image is beautifully and thoughtfully rendered. The peach-colored sky informs the entire scene, creating a peaceful and poetic aura.

 

Christine Gagne, Walking with Jim, oil

Expertly composed, the intersection of its darks and lights are outstanding. Excellent use of foreground to background space and elegant use of complimentary colors. The depiction of both man-made surfaces and nature are spot-on.

 

Steven Specht, Who’s Protecting Whom, From What, analog collage

There’s much to look at and wonder about with this intriguing image. With impeccable composition and excellent attention to craft, this collage asks more questions than it answers. As Dorothy would say, “ I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto.”

 

Arlene Black Mollo, Six Lilies, Falmouth, watercolor

Painted with a loose, spontaneous feel, these lush flowers straddle uninhibitedness and control, abstraction and representation and capture the essence of each flower. Excellent balance of lights and darks, suggestion and detail.

 

Catherine Cetta, Marsh View, acrylic

The star of this fantastic image is illumination. The colors from above are reflected below, and we, the viewers, are transfixed, enveloped by the intangible. It’s poetic and all encompassing. We know it will change in a second, yet it’s captured here for us to remember and keep.

 

Richard Pawlak, A Woman and a Man (Walking), fresco

Wonderful body language. A feeling of movement is captured by the soft edges of the figures. The simplicity of the composition increases the narrative quality and the textural background suggests no place, or every place. A delightful slice of life.
