Juror: Andrew Wages

Juror's Statement

"When I'm walking in the landscape looking for a place to paint, I may notice a combination of colors or a feeling of light and value, or I may be stopped by a special touch of detail.

However, it is being out in nature that really touches me deeply. It is the sights, sounds, and the feel of it, that touches me deep inside.

At times it is almost a spiritual thing, unpaintable, but there is a peace and quietness to my painting that I enjoy when I see them framed and, in the studio, or in my home. I hope others feel some of the things I feel while I'm painting and find that peace and quietness also.

We need to work hard to preserve our natural landscape for other generations to enjoy. I have seen a lot destroyed during the last two decades. It takes each person doing his or her small part to preserve our national landscape."

Juror's Biography

While a young boy, Andrew Wages wandered the hills of southern Oklahoma. After his fam-ily moved to Texas, he developed an interest in art. Encouraged by his teachers, he attended Art Center College of Design, graduating with honors.

He married his high school sweetheart, Sandra Lee, and was off to New York City to appren-tice as an illustrator to one of the commercial art studios. He was drafted by the army and served as an illustrator in Fourth Army Recruiting. He then worked as a free-lance illustrator in Dallas for thirty-five years.

But for the past fifteen years, Andrew has followed his dream and has been painting land-scapes, still life, portraits and figurative works. He has taught at SMU and El Centro, as well as private lessons, critiques and workshops.

Andrew has two children and two granddaughters.


Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

Art is either plagiarism or revolution. - Paul Gauguin 1848-1903

Every time I paint a portrait, I lose a friend. - John Singer Sargent
