Juror: Nationally known, award-winning artist Theodore Waddell is the esteemed juror for The Brinton’s juried invitational. Waddell was born in 1941 in Billings, Montana, and spent his childhood in nearby Laurel. He later studied art at the Brooklyn Museum Art School in Brooklyn, New York. He received a Bachelor's Degree from Eastern Montana College and in 1968 received a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture and Printmaking from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.

About printmaking, Waddell once stated “The technique involved in printmaking is very complex and I have been trying to understand it for over 30 years, it is much like learning to draw in the dark. The washes and overlays are so mystical and mysterious that it is impossible to predict the final outcome.”
