Our annual Landscapes, Seascapes and Cityscapes show was judged this year by Largo artist Sylvia Shanahan, whose work can be seen at at Woodfield Fine Art in St. Petersburg, FL Dunedin Fine Art Center Gift Shop and her studio in Dunedin, FL to name a few. Her affiliations include The Akron Society of Artists, Creative Artists Guild, Beach Art Center, Dunedin Fine Arts Center, The Morean Art Center and The Institute of Creative Arts where she teaches oil painting, colored pencil and private classes.
"This show was judged initially with a point system that rated each piece from 0-10 in three categories: A) Mastery of Medium B) Presentation C) Wow Factor. Each was tallied and then pieces with the highest composite scores were looked at, looked at again and prizes were selected at that point. Thank you for asking me to judge your show and seeing your wonderful artwork.”
