Introduction by Janice Pluma, Exhibition Director

 

Welcome to the 17th Annual Open Exhibition of the International Society of Acrylic Painters. Artists from diverse locales are represented, with an entry from each of the following states: Arkansas, Connecticut, Idaho, Indiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, and South Carolina. There are two entries each from: Hawaii, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, and Washington. Florida and Michigan each have 3 entries. Colorado has 4 entries and California has the strongest showing, with 20 entries. In addition, there is an entry from Malaysia, and from the United Kingdom.

 

This is the third year this exhibit has been presented in Paso Robles. During the first two years, the event was staged in both the Studios on the Park atrium and The PRAA Showroom gallery, which allowed space for large-scale paintings. This year, only The Showroom gallery was available, so it was necessary to limit the maximum size of the work, allowing for 58 paintings to be shown in the smaller venue. This did not compromise the quality of the entries. The work you see is strong, vibrant and exciting, showcasing a variety of approaches.

 

To quote the juror, Linda Doll, whose credentials include the American Watercolor Society and National Watercolor Society:

 

“I believe it is a remarkable, unified exhibition representing the wide range of excellent work submitted and the vast variety of styles. I was responsive to design, technique, style and subject matter but I tried to be equally sensitive to content and concept. I believe this is an excellent and diverse exhibit with paintings that are imaginative and innovative and depict the diversity of the entrants in subject and style.”

 

Congratulations to all who entered and to the award winners announced today. You can all be proud of this accomplishment. Special thanks to the hardworking people who helped to make the show a reality and especially to ISAP for this wonderful partnership with Paso Robles Art Association.

 

 

 

Juror's Statement, Linda Doll

 

Thank you for inviting me to jury the ISAP 2014 Exhibition. It was a privilege and an honor for me to jury this prominent & highly respected show.  My best wishes to all who entered. Congratulations to all who were selected for this exhibition and especially to those who receive an award. 

 

It was quite a challenge to jury this show. I was extremely frustrated by a large number of fabulous entries whose size exceeded the limit and therefore I had to eliminate them for that reason.  Artists need to learn to read each prospectus carefully. I believe it is a remarkable, unified exhibition representing the wide range of excellent work submitted and the vast variety of styles.

 

I was responsive to design, technique, style and subject matter but I tried to be equally sensitive to content and concept.  I believe this is an excellent and diverse exhibit with paintings that are imaginative and innovative and depict the diversity of the entrants in subject and style. 

 

Thank you to all who helped compile the entries into a well organized digital presentation and to all those who helped on award jury day.  It certainly made the jury process a smooth and pleasurable one.

 

Again Congratulations to All !
