About the juror, Glenn E. Blue
Glenn E. Blue grew up in a family of artists in the suburbs of Philadelphia. His parents were art teachers for numerous school districts and adult classes, so he learned art at a very early age. By his teenage years Glenn was selling paintings professionally. Over the following thirty plus years, Glenn has trained in fine arts and shown in countless local, regional, and international shows. Glenn has traveled to numerous places in Europe painting and collecting art. He has taken classes from Joseph Zbukvic, Alvaro Castagnet, Nita Engle, David Taylor, Gregg Allen, Tony Couch and others.
Glenn has painted loose glowing representational watercolors on his many plein air painting trips. He has painted in Venice, Sienna, Pienza, Tuscany, Rome, Florence, Bellagio, Cinque Terra, Portofino, Naples, Salzburg and Innsbruck Austria, Prague in the Czech Republic and many places throughout the United States.
His works have been shown in several galleries and he has been the subject of many newspaper articles. Glenn currently has paintings on display in his own gallery space at the Marketview Arts Center, York PA and in the Chadds Ford Gallery, in Chadds Ford PA.
Glenn is the judge for the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society’s 2014 online membership exhibition. He will be teaching a watercolor workshop in July for the York Art Association.
Glenn captures the artistic impression and atmosphere of his subjects. His paintings are representative without being photographic. He showcases the flow and glow of watercolor.
