JUDGES

Dan O'Donnell

Dan O'Donnell sees the world as a colorful realm. He conveys how he sees things through his photography.

He is often asked, "is that a photo or a painting?", and his answer is - yes! His gallery work starts as a photograph and is then digitally altered, or "painted", prior to printing.

As a Wedding and Event photographer, he keeps to the conventions of capturing people in their "best light". His Artography allows him the freedom to EXPLORE! Artography is creating art from photographs.

Jim Tyler

Jim Tyler paints exclusively with pastel. Largely self-taught, he began working with pastel at an early age and began painting seriously in 2001. Since that time he has been featured in Pastel Journal Magazine and has won awards at numerous national shows. Jim has been awarded signature status with the Pastel Society of the West Coast and the Sierra Pastel Society, and is a founding member of the California Central Coast Pastel Society. The scenes that capture Jim’s eye consistently have strong lighting and deep shadows, and he uses the richness of pastel to capture that boldness in his paintings.

Rebecca Wamsley

Most of my life I have been a maker of things but clay has called me back again and again. To some extent I inherited a connection to clay. My great grandfather was a brick manufacturer and my father worked as a bricklayer for many years.

I studied ceramics at Saddleback College, then at Santa Barbara Adult Ed. Thirty years later I moved to Alamos, Mexico where I engaged with a Mexican potter from whose grandmother I had bought a simple coiled terracotta water pot from many years earlier. That restarted my passion for clay.

In 2007 I moved to SLO and started working with clay again. My work is offered for sale annually at Open Studios and through my website.
