Juror's Statement: Stan Kurth

I would like to thank Deena Ball and the Philadelphia Water Color Society for allowing me the distinguished privilege of judging the 2018 Members Online Show. It was a difficult task to say the least because there were so many quality paintings. It's never easy selecting the "best" paintings for awards in a pool which includes such a variety of well executed styles and subject matter. No two jurors would pick the same paintings. This is a primarily subjective business we as painters ascribe to. For me it came down to those paintings which exhibited superior technical ability or design, and more importantly those which also invoked a strong visceral response in addition to the aforementioned qualities. As is the case most often, I vacillated and revisited those on the cusp again and again but the top awards clicked right away.
