Join us Saturday August 6 for a Lecture and Breakfast with E. Jane Stoddard, NWS, TWSA-MASTER! Starting at 9am, our Juror of Awards will be discussing a selection of the paintings featured in this year's exhibition and demonstrating her artistic process. Registration is required prior to the event. 

Juror E. Jane Stoddard, NWS, TWSA-Master is an accomplished and award winning artist with multiple Signature Affiliations. She started her art career as an oil painter and her love of detail carried over to watercolor. She strongly believes in doing all of her own drawing and believes that strong composition is critical to good painting. Her multiple layers of transparent watercolor create deep rich darks and dramatic color. Jane has traveled extensively in search of new subjects to paint and is attracted to boats, market scenes, and most recently still life. Jane has entered, been accepted to and participated in hundreds of national shows during her painting career winning numerous awards along the way and her very first national award was at the Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors – the circle is complete!
