Our Juror - Cheryl Metzger

Cheryl Metzger is a colored pencil artist from the small town of Felicity in Southeast Ohio, five miles from the Ohio River. Her and her husband own a farm and live in a log house. Wild animals and wild flowers abound. She is never at a loss for painting subjects. Almost everyday is filled with photographs of humming birds, cardinals, sycamore trees and all of God’s wonders. She has given private classes in oil, taught at the Vocational School, and meets with a group every Tuesday to critique and draw. She still takes classes every chance she gets.She has been privileged to have had classes from Cecile Baird, Ann Kullberg, Linda Lucas Hardy, Gemma Gyling, Debbie Hook, Pat Averil, Eileen Sorg, Kristy Kutch, and others. She belongs to the Ohio River Art Guild, Chapter 119, and CPSA. This summer she hopes to receive her Signature Status at the International CPSA show in Daytona Beach. Colored pencil has been such a pleasurable addition to her life. It opened up a world of color, sunshine, and friends!  “Creativity is more than art, it’s a key that unlocks our basic goodness.”

Juror's Statement

Judging Ann Kullberg’s 15th Annual Members Show was a daunting task but a very rewarding one. As I contemplated each piece I was courted by the artist. The mood, the color, the composition, the skill of the artist, and the overall feeling that the piece provoked were all important. Some jumped right out at me while others were subtle and unexpected. Everyone that entered should be proud to have their work shown on line to so many. Congratulations!

Best of Show: "Shadow Abby" - Holly Siniscal

This is a sensitive and masterfully rendered piece of art. You have the young girl with a “tough” expression but still an overall vulnerable look. She perfectly matches the rusty, slightly tainted background. In one word: Powerful. You are taken in – you want to know more about her and the rest of the story.

1st Place: "On a Down Time Train" - Gina Anderson

Here we can see a statement concerning the human condition. Every person is relaxing in their own little world – not looking at each other or talking. The colorful seats are in direct contrast to the overall mood. Your eye moves to the door in anticipation. There is so much to see in this piece and so much feeling.

2nd Place:  "Green Vase in the Morning" - Andrew Purdy

You can feel the morning sun on the floor surrounding the sparkling vase. The green vase is perfectly rendered with every little reflection and turn.   That slight green streak of light in the shadows grabs the viewer’s attention and admiration.

3rd Place:  "Tableau" - Julie Podstolski

So interesting. So much to look at and to ponder. The old drawing on the wall grabs your attention first and then you realize that the lady and the dog are so similar to the drawing. This piece is captivating, drawing you in until you have seen every little detail.
