Juror’s Statement
Pat Moseuk

I am greatly honored to be selected as juror this year for the Ohio Watercolor Society’s, Watercolor Ohio 2022. As a professional artist for 37 years and an educator in the arts for 26 years, an invitation to be a juror is one of my career highlights. This year 245 entries were strong and truly impressive, so it was a difficult decision to narrow it down to just 60 entries for this show. I wanted to show a variety of diverse paintings in watermedia.

First, I looked through the entire body of work and picked out the pieces that really stood out for me. I looked for a strong composition, a balance of contrast, texture, technique and creativity plus paintings that brought me in with some mystery or a story to tell. Once I picked the paintings, I took the time to truly examine them on my large computer monitor. First stepping back to look at the contrast and then zooming in to look at technique, texture and skill level. The hardest part came when I had to narrow it down to just 6o paintings. I went over that process quite a few times. Every painting in this Exhibition is showcasing elements mentioned above.

It was a pleasure to review all these beautiful works by such talented artists. For the ones that were selected, Congratulations! If you were not selected this year, please enter again next year, because every juror is different. All artists have a gift to give, so never give up on your craft and keep on painting! Thank you again for selecting me as your juror.
