THE JURORS OF AWARDS
Susan Avis Murphy
Susan’s watercolors have been honored with inclusion in many significant exhibitions and corporate collections. She is currently a member of the American Watercolor Society, Southern Watercolor Society, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society and Baltimore Watercolor Society. The fine art gallery Les Yeux du Monde in Charlottesville, VA, shows her work.“Watercolor keeps teaching me new things. I have enjoyed experimenting with it in many different ways and have covered a vast array of subject matter, both realistic and abstract. Each pigment in the watery medium behaves in its own way—something that both challenges and stimulates the user.”
Lois is a painter of watercolor and acrylics. Her paintings have received many awards and been accepted into national and international exhibitions including the National Watercolor Society, the Adirondack Watercolor Society and the Philadelphia Watercolor Society.
Lois is known for her use of color to create mood. Her figure paintings are of people involved in conversation and suggest a voyeuristic point of view. Lois’ still life, landscapes and interior paintings aim at capturing a moment in time.
THE JUROR’S STATEMENT
We liked the variety of work presented by the artists of this region. A good cross section
of work, expressing representational, abstract and emotional ideas have made for an
all-encompassing show . Our gratitude to all who presented work for our consideration.
It is a very good show!
