“The city of St. Augustine provides so many interesting places to paint, and these plein air paintings in the exhibit covered the city from Anastasia Island, downtown in around the shops and historic buildings, and over to the Lincolnville neighborhood. Some artists even ventured out in the evening and were able to paint some very interesting artwork using the light of the night.
I want to ensure all the artworks that earn awards will be the most deserving with both outstanding technique and composition. My judging looks for a variety of style and medium. The exhibition will seem like you are on a walking tour of St. Augustine when you stop by to take in the exhibition.”
