South Shore Art Center’s Blue Ribbon Members’ Show is particularly important to us because it represents everything we stand for: a community united in creativity. Blue Ribbon is one of two shows annually at which our members are guaranteed an opportunity to showcase their work. Having the word “member” in the exhibition’s title is intentional; this is a member benefit – with participation limited to Art Center members in good standing.

Judges Comments
Chris Rifkin, Judge


Blue Ribbon Awards (in alphabetical order):

 

“Tulips,” Joanne Kaczowka
This small painting has gestural forms and a pop of color. I like how the artist lays down the paint in such a bold take no prisoners fashion.
 
“Heading Back to Sea,” Kay Kopper
This is a quiet and gentle watercolor with subdued use of color and a sense of stillness around the horseshoe crab.

 

“Summer Wave,” Karen Pinard
This watercolor captures crashing waves and foam. It is full of energy and dances with light.

 

“Blue Day,” Tina Watson
This painting is expansive with lots of energy and movement in the sky reflected in the water, using a very limited palette of blue, black and creamy white.


Honorable Mentions (in alphabetical order):

 

“Berry Thicket,” Kathleen Folino
This etching has washes of color flowing over it, creating a delicate and evocative print.
 
“Bright Spot,” Amy Geyer
I like the subdued and quiet simple forms and lines, plus the use of collage that adds depth to the etching.

 

“Connemara,” Becky Haletky
This watercolor has a wonderful sense of serenity about it; the horses at rest, the hushed landscape in the background.

 

“Yellow Nude 2,” Anthony Pilla
This woodcut shows a bold use of color with a classical nude, and it swirls with energy.
