Our juror for the 2021 Online Juried Exhibition was artist and teacher Cathy Hillegas. Cathy has been teaching watercolor for 19 years in Kentucky and Indiana. She is a Signature member of the Kentucky Watercolor Society and has won multiple awards over the years. She has been selected twice to appear in Splash: The Best of Watercolor. Her work is found in local galleries, and you can also find her at Preston’s Art Center in Louisville, KY, where she teaches. You can visit Cathy’s website and her Facebook page, Cathy Hillegas Watercolors, to learn more about her.
Cathy said she found the selection of accepted paintings and award winners quite a challenge for the 2021 Exhibition, as the quality of all the work entered was very high!
