JRAL's Summer 2020 Members Judged Exhibit
"A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words"
Our Summer 2020 JRAL judged exhibit held at Cultural Arts Center-Glen Allen Gumenick Gallery featured art with the theme of "A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words", for which 34 member artists created paintings that reflect an inspirational quote, song, poem, memory or story that was meaningful to them. Our judge was Andre Lucero, who is an impressionistic oil painter based near Richmond, Virginia. Andre Lucero was trained in a traditional academic setting but in recent years has combined his love for the outdoors with his art. Completing more than 100 plein air paintings a year, his work includes landscapes, figures and still life painted from life. Learn more about Andre at www.andrelucero.com.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and concerns, we regretfully were not able to host an awards reception for this exhibit. However, we did video our judge's comments on each award recipient. Please enjoy the video and Andre's remarks.
