Juror - Sheri Farabaugh

Sheri began painting after careers in tax accounting and biochemistry; just about as far from art as you can get. But a love of drawing and painting as a child and teen stayed with her until time permitted, and from the moment she took her first class as an early retiree, she was forever committed to being the best artist she could be. Sheri’s oil paintings have received many awards and recognition, and have been juried into numerous local and national exhibitions. She has been awarded signature status in the American Society of Marine Artists, Oil Painters of America, and American Women Artists. As an artist she remains intrigued by water, transfixed by the reflections, the transparency, and the way water can convey both power and peacefulness
