Juror of Selection - Robert Burridge

Robert Burridge, a noted award-winning Industrial Designer who, after twenty-five years in the corporate world, focused his life to painting everyday. Burridge attributes his success to his education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, his stint as an adjunct professor at Cooper Union in New York City, and in 1966, his Fluxus art performances with Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Jim McWilliams and Charlotte Moorman. His work hangs in permanent collections of international embassies, corporate galleries and art colleges. His solo museum exhibitions received positive attention, so he was invited to exhibit his paintings at the Smithsonian Folklife Circus Arts Festival in Washington, DC.


Judge of Awards - Andy Evansen

Andy Evansen began painting watercolors as a change from the detailed digital images he creates as a medical illustrator.  His work gained recognition after winning an international watercolor competition through American Artist magazine, appearing on their cover in 2005.  His paintings have won numerous awards, including the Bronze Medal of Honor at the 2012 American Watercolor Society Exhibition, the Painters Award in Northwest Watercolor Society’s 2012 Waterworks Exhibition, and in 2015 he received the High Winds Medal and his signature status from the American Watercolor Society.

Andy was a featured presenter at the 2014 and 2016 Plein Air Convention and Expo, and in 2015 he was invited to Nanning, China to participate in a watercolor exhibition and plein air event alongside  other world renowned watercolor painters.  Andy recently opened his own studio gallery, Evansen Art Studio, in Hastings, MN, and he serves as the President for the prestigious Plein Air Painters of America (PAPA).  To learn more about Andy and his work please visit his website:  

Andy Evansen will also be offering a three-day watercolor workshop, September 7, 2017 - September 9, 2017. He will also be demonstrating on the evening of September 9th. Both of these events will have a discounted rate for current PWCS members. As we get closer to this event more information will be available.
