Juror Michael Reardon has been painting in watercolor for over twenty-five years. He is sought after as an instructor, leading workshops around the country and internationally with a focus on the use of light and color. He is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, and the California Watercolor Association. In 2012 he received Best of Show at the Triton Museum of Art Statewide Exhibition of Watercolor. His watercolors have been featured in many magazines, including American Artist Watercolor, the Artist’s Magazine, Southwest Art, Watercolor Artist, Plein Air. And L’Art de l’Aquarelle, an international magazine on watercolor.

Juror's Comments on the show: When first reviewing an exhibit, there are often a few paintings that stand out above the rest, making the selection of award winners straightforward. However, when I first saw this exhibit it was clear that the jurying wasn’t going to be easy. There were so many paintings that were worthy of awards. The high caliber of the artwork meant that many deserving paintings weren’t selected to receive recognition. My  compliments to SCVWS for a beautiful exhibit and many thanks for the honor of being your juror.
