    PAAC's Board and Masters have elevated Debra Joy Groesser to PAAC Master Signature status.

    Deb is a nationally known and award winning plein air artist, and participates widely in many significant plein air events each year.

    She has been interviewed on the podcast Artists Helping Artists, profiled in national art publications, and is the CEO/President of the American Impressionist Society.

    Deb has also been an ardent supporter of PAAC. She has served on the board, and has chaired two of our annual exhibitions. Even after stepping down from the board, she has generously mentored other board members and show chairs. She has been the presenter of awards at several PAAC exhibitions, and spoken at presentations.

    Deb has greatly contributed to the ongoing success of PAAC, and we have no doubt that she will continue to do so.

    With comments from Jeff Legg - awards judge


    Best of Show

    Sabrina Stiles-“Daybreak at Sandstone”

    “This convincing sun washed hillside demonstrates Sabrina's beautiful sensitivity to the nuances in nature and make this an outstanding painting. The subtle qualities of color and value combined with the solidity of form give the viewer a sense of place in this ethereal landscape.”

    1st Place Signature
    Debra Joy Groesser-“Gone to Check the Lobstahs”
    “Debra has captured the intricacies of this scene with a confidant brush.  A beautifully organized and complicated scene that holds together as a whole with its interconnected shapes while being bathed in golden sunlight.”

    1st Place Associate
    Jennifer Riefenberg, “Aspen Impressions Winter I”
    “Jennifer's painting has wonderfully organized shapes that make a seemingly simple composition striking. The color harmonies are beautiful and give the piece a strong atmospheric sense.”

    2nd Place Overall
    Jane Hunt “Lafayette Sunrise”
    “Jane has created a piece that also captures a sense of place and time. Well organized shapes and control of values and aerial perspective enhance the mood, elevating this to an award winner.”

    3rd Place Overall
    Carol Strock Wasson “Lingering Snow”
    “Carol's quirky use of color, brushwork and perspective make this painting memorable. Although awkward in a way, its un-idealized honesty makes it more authentic. “

    Artists’ Choice Award
    Jane Hunt “Lafayette Sunrise”

    Master Signature Award
    Albert Handell “"At Bays Point, Eastpoint, Florida”

    Allen Award

    Will Maller "Capitola"
