Our 10th annual "Explorations in Colored Pencil X" show was a great success. The Lindsay Dirkx Brown Art Gallery in the San Ramon Community Center was a beautiful setting to display our art.
Our judge, Leslie Wilson, was suitably impressed with our artwork. We thank her for an excellent job judging the show. Leslie felt our show represented a wide range of subjects and styles. She was fascinated by what our artists could accomplish using colored pencil and found it very difficult to decide which pieces would receive the awards.
Leslie Wilson is a well-known Bay Area watercolor artist and instructor. She has focused on watercolor painting for more than 30 years. Learn more about Leslie here.
