Juror – Stuart Shils
Stuart Shils is a contemporary American landscape painter. His works toe the line between formal abstraction and fidelity to the scene he is observing. Mainly known as a plein air painter, he has recently incorporated working from his own photographs of urban scenes. The artist has cited the work of Piero della Francesca and Giorgio Morandi as important influences in his development as a painter. Born in 1954, in Philadelphia, PA, Shils studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts under Seymour Remenick and Arthur De Costa. He was the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and an Academy Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York. Mr. Shils has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Tibor de Nagy Gallery, David and Langdale, and Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects in New York. Shils lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
