is all about the transition of artists from novice to expert. This show allows for all artists no matter where they are in their art journey. Beginning artists will have their work display next to seasoned artists with decades of art experience. Art competitions are a wonderful way to build confidence, get your artwork and name into the art community, and connect with great like-minded people. Contemporary artist Dean Mitchell credits his high school experience in local art competitions for his decision to become an artist.

The Pastel Society of Colorado is pleased to present our awards judge, Tom Lockhart.
Tom Lockhart is a representational landscape artist who was born and raised in the heart of the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado. Lockhart feels that solid drawing, correct values and colors, along with the atmospheric effects of light within the landscape are some of the keys to a visually stimulating and interesting image. Painting from life, en plein air as often as possible, helps to reinforce these visual stimulants when it comes to painting the landscape. Lockhart has been working as a professional artist for over thirty years. Being primarily a self-taught artist, he has learned to seek out information not only from painting from life outdoors, but also studying with top professional working artists. To help to further his knowledge and skill, he feels that nothing takes the place of study, hard work, and painting hundreds of paintings.
Several recent awards include: Top 100 Finalists in National Oil and Acrylic Painters (NOAPS), National Exhibition Showcase 2018, as well as the 2016 Online Exhibition & Merit Award Winner. Oil Painters of America (OPA) Western Regional 2017, as well as Signature membership in NOAPS, OPA, and Colorado WatercolorSociety (CWS). He has gained Third Place in CWS Statewide Exhibition in 2018, and Best of Show in three Plein Air Competitions in Colorado in 2011. Lockhart was awarded Region III Silver Medal in the National Arts for the Parks in 1994 and 2004. He has been featured in Art of the West Magazine, Jul/Aug 2018, May/Jun 1998, Southwest Art Magazine 2006, and American Artists Watercolor Magazines in 2000.
