LPAPA is pleased to announce and congratulate our new 2020 Signature Artist Members: Michael Broshar of Buckingham, Iowa, Tatyana Fogarty of Fair Oaks, California, Catherine Hillis of Saint Simons Island, Georgia, Ryan Jensen of Blue Lake, California, Jason Li of Yorba Linda, California, Richard Lindenberg of Novato, California, and Mark Shasha of Swampscott, Massachusetts.
“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, Senior Curator of California Impressionism, The UCI Institute and Museum for California Art.
The top scoring artists, based on the combined scores of our 4 distinguished panel of jurors, after a review of the submitted body of work representing the artist’s best plein air and studio work, receive the designation of Laguna Plein Air Painters Association Signature Artist Member.
Many thanks to our 2020 distinguished panel of Jurors:
Saim Caglayan, LPAPA Founder & Signature Artist Member
Rick J. Delanty, LPAPA Signature Artist Member & LPAPA’s 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient
Mr. Jean Stern, Artistic Advisory to LPAPA’s Board and Senior Curator of California Impressionism, The Institute and Museum for California Art University of California, Irvine, and
Rosemary Swimm, LPAPA’s Executive Director
