The Minnesota Watercolor Society recently announced the winners of its show “Spring Sightings” at Reedy Gallery, Minnesota Arboretum, University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
From the Society:
The following awards were given out by juror and judge David Feinberg. Feinberg is an Associate Professor of Drawing and Painting at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis and is a frequent juror for art exhibits in the Twin Cities metro area.
When Feinberg sent the list of paintings he had chosen for the show, he wrote, “I believe I experienced juroring the most talented artists ever applying for an exhibition, and thus it was extremely difficult to eliminate so many works that I really liked.”
