This exhibit’s juror, Lynn Loscutoff is an accomplished artist, gallery owner, teacher and author, living in Naples, FL, and Gloucester, MA. Lynn works mostly in watercolor on Yudo paper, and also in oils. Much of her inspiration comes from her life of extensive traveling. She has traveled all over the world, and has even taught art to passengers aboard various cruise lines. Loscutoff has written three books and teaches at the Naples United Church of Christ and The von Liebig Art Center. In jurying Multiples she looked for repetition in a work’s subject matter, and recurrence in form, color, and medium.
Multiples exhibit supported by Visual Arts Patron Season Sponsors June Rosner and Russ Bilgore.
