Juror's Comments: Merit Awards

Juror Robert P. Hutton is a retired art teacher. In his long career at Marshall University, he taught most subjects and is familiar with all facets of fine art. While working his way through the 11th Annual National Miniature Exhibition, he put his vast experience to work in the selection of award winners. These awards are awards of special merit, being works that are true to the form of the miniature and themselves outstanding pieces.

For each award given, our Juror, Robert P. Hutton left a comment, a clue to why that piece was chosen. Here are the awards and Mr. Hutton’s comments

Merit Award:

“Rocky Creek” by Beverly Fotheringham North Bend, WA: A well organized turbulence-rich in texture, pattern and deep color.

“The Hermit’s Studio” by H. Francis Sellers of Sandy, UT: A Charming dream- like vision of the neglected artist-at least a dozen micro-miniature paintings within.

And to Gail Mac Argel of St. Peter, MO, a special Mrit award, our

Teacher’s Merit Award.

“Morning Tea” by Gail Mac Argel of St Peter, MO: Interesting play of precise shapes between the subject and the “picture” within the picture.

This is an award sponsored by the artists who teach fine art classes at The Renaissance Art Gallery.

We want to congratulate these artist and hope everyone take the opportunity to come in and see these works for themselves.
