“The designation of ‘Signature Artist’ in any artists’ association is a recognition of high status, an acknowledgment by your peers that you are worthy of special distinction for your remarkable talent and capability in creating a work of art. It is a distinction that the majority of members of any art group do not have and in turn, would love to receive. Your peers look to Signature Artists for inspiration and to set a high standard that they themselves strive to achieve.” –—Mr. Jean Stern, Director Emeritus of The Irvine Museum.
The top-scoring artists, based on the combined scores of our 4 distinguished panel of jurors, after a review of the artist’s submitted body of work representing their best plein air and studio work, received the designation of Laguna Plein Air Painters Association Signature Artist Member.
Many thanks to our 2023 distinguished panel of Jurors:
Kathleen Dunphy, LPAPA Signature Artist Member
Debra Huse, LPAPA Signature Artist Member & LPAPA Emeritus Board Member
Rosemary Swimm, LPAPA’s Executive Advisor
Mr. Jean Stern, Director Emeritus of The Irvine Museum & Artistic Advisory to LPAPA’s Board of Directors
