Jeannie Vodden

WASH is delighted to present the juror for our 2018 Annual Member Show, Jeannie Vodden. Jeannie did a fantastic job of judging our 2018 Member Show, and we thank her for her work.

Having studied under Sacramento master artist, Gary Pruner, JeannieJeannie Vodden Vodden has a firm foundation in art. She has taught workshops and has shown her work in many locations throughout California for almost 20 years. Vodden prefers a complex play of form and light balanced with a very simple palette. Starting with only three to six colors she glazes many transparent layers. This reveals an unusual feeling of depth of color.

As she reviews art work, Vodden looks for three aspects: skill, composition and substance. Ideally a piece of art allows us to see the world around us in a new or fuller way, showing us something we haven’t seen before, a unique vantage point or something painted in a distinctive way.
