The Award Juror is California plein air artist, Patty Biederman: is a Carmel-based Plein Air painter who derives the bulk of her inspiration from the landscapes she has seen on her numerous cross-country road trips in the states and her frequent forays abroad.

First as an interior designer in the New York Metropolitan area, then as a gallery owner in rural Virginia.  Patty is represented by the Carmel Art Association Gallery.
