Christine's work, Inspiration received a Merit Award at the Pittsburgh Water Color Society Aqueous Open Exhibition. Juror: Carla O'Connor
Statement from Juror:
It was truly an honor to serve as juror for the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society Aqueous Open Exhibition 2021. Entries came from all over the United States and the world in a celebration of achievement of watermedia with a diversity of voices, rich in beauty and social modern day concerns. There were a high number with outstanding quality and creations that are traditional, realistic, impressionistic, conceptual, experimental and abstract. Each is worthy of recognition.
All the work selected for the exhibit have in common sound technical skill as well as a proficient understanding of composition, drawing, value, color, light, line, volume and shape. Regardless of the style, the paintings that made it to the top tier are the ones that strive for the unique, thoughtful, imaginative, exuberant and inspiring. These are the Risk Takers – the artists that constantly ask themselves “How does it make me feel?” “What exactly am I trying to communicate?” “What if…?”
