Marla Baggetta, Juror and Judge
The PSC is proud to announce that the judge and juror is Marla Baggetta. A prolific painter and teacher, Marla's artwork and workshops are nationally sought after. Her work has been represented throughout the country for over 30 years. Contributing to many art publications such as Pastel Journal, she is a signature PSA member and an IAPS Master Circle Recipient.Marla graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. She worked as a commercial illustrator for 25 years. After moving to Oregon in 1993, she was inspired by the beauty of the Willamette Valley and began painting landscapes that blend realism and abstraction that convey a sense of calm and balance. Among her numerous awards and honors are Arts for the Parks Annual Juried Exhibition. She has been featured in the Pastel Journal and is included in Pure Color: The Best of Pastel and Sketchbook Confidential II. She is the author of Step by Step Pastel by Walter Foster Publishing. Her paintings can be found in numerous public and private collections throughout the country.

While she makes her home in Portland, Oregon, Baggetta travels extensively throughout the United States painting, teaching workshops and jurying shows. Marla is a sought after workshop instructor, adept at helping students develop an individual painting style. Baggetta's approach to painting reflects both the formal art education she received at Art Center College of Design and the years of experience that can only be gained from behind the easel.

Awards Judge: Mike Ray
A painter's journey is never over. I can no longer remember a beginning and I see no end to my journey. It is a journey of seeing and then painting how I feel about what I see. I am a product of the West. Many generations of ranchers, farmers, miners and loggers have shaped my passion for the western outdoors. I paint because it takes me to those places that I love. My quest is to share that love by painting contemporary Western America one painting at a time. I am a local and national award winning artist with a degree in Fine Art from Regis University. I am a Master Signature member of the Pastel Society of Colorado and a member of the Plein Air Artists of Colorado (PAAC).
