45th Annual Spring Member Exhibition 2023

Soon Warren, Juror

Juror’s statement.  “I enjoy painting with passion, as I look for every painting, which I call attitude. When the attitude is combined with any of the following qualities: strong composition, expression of color, confident draftsmanship, or any combination of these elements, it draws my attention.  Witnessing the unique perspective of each artist, with emphasis on surprising aspects of otherwise ordinary subject matter, is always invigorating and inspirational. I appreciate how and why one paints rather than what one paints. I encourage paint what you love with passion.”
