Judge of Selection and Awards

Cindy Baron

Cindy is nationally recognized in both watercolors and oils, painting the grand landscapes of the western mountains and coastal shorelines.

Raised in South Bend, Indiana she has had the experience of living and painting all over the country. A full time artist, she conducts workshops across the country and internationally and has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design in their Continuing Ed., Department.

Her passion in the arts began with pastels, which then led to watercolors and in 2000 was awarded signature status of The American Watercolor Society. In 2019 she became a master signature member of Oil Painters of America, and is among a select group of artist that has received acknowledgment from her peers in both mediums. A plein-air painter enthusiast and her extensive travels, have given Cindy an abundance of information and knowledge, which she shares with her students. She has become a highly sought after instructor, teaching her skills around the country and Continuing Education classes to teachers. She has had the privilege of judging many award shows and has been featured in numerous publications.

Her paintings reflect the beauty that is found in nature, if you take the time to study the colors around you. She can capture beauty in a blustering storm or the tranquil air of everyday places. Her portraitures relay a story of human life as though they were family or friend. The versatility of mediums, subjects, keeps her energized, excited and creative. She finds that each medium has influenced the other, which gives her paintings a wall of their own.

Cindy is a member of:
Oil Painters of America Master
Plein Air Painters of America
American Watercolor Society
American Impressionist Society
Laguna Plein Air Painters Assoc.


Volunteers are needed for publicity, labels, and catalogue. If one person would like to volunteer during receiving weekend that is certainly appreciated but not expected.
