JUROR: Susannah Hart Thomer

Susannah has a BFA in fashion illustration from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia and is a signature member of the following watercolor societies:  PWCS, PWS, BWS and AWS.  She has illustrated children’s books, has won various awards in local and national watercolor exhibitions and was recently featured in an 8-page article in American Artist Magazine.  Ms. Thomer also belongs to several art leagues and groups, and currently volunteers as newsletter editor for the American Watercolor Society (AWS).  She is represented in art galleries in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. 

That is only one part of her make-up as an artist.

Another part is the continuous appreciation and education of the art world.  Its source comes from personal experimentation, diversity of venues, commission work and most importantly from the community and family of her fellow artists that keep her refreshed, replenished, and energized.

Juror: Maura Matthews


Maura_Matthews    Maura_Matthews

Maura Matthews first learned about color, composition and contrast from her high school art teacher Walt Bartman, whose expressive approach to painting and teaching has had a lasting influence on her.  As a studio art minor at the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts, Maura began painting in oils with a palette knife and she has been doing so ever since.

An avid traveler, Maura studied at Oxford University and taught English in Japan before moving to “Pigs Alley” in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia in 2000.  Since then she has built a thriving painting business, opening her own studio, the Pigs Alley Gallery, in Flourtown in 2017.  Maura’s vibrant paintings have earned much recognition, including prizes in plein air competitions in Manayunk, Chestnut Hill and Whitemarsh Township.  Her work has been exhibited in juried shows at the Philadelphia Sketch Club, Morris Arboretum and Walters Art Museum, among other venues.

A frequent participant in the Chestnut Hill Fall for the Arts Festivals, Maura loves to combine creativity and community.  In painting she revisits favorite places, depicting scenes foreign and familiar with a palette knife which lends texture and looseness to her work.  In teaching she aims to help children and adults learn to “see” the world for themselves.
