MEET OUR JUROR
The Pencil Art Society is delighted to announce that Ann James Massey is our juror for our second PAS Online Member Juried Exhibition. All decisions by our juror are final and may not be appealed.
From her initial art competition in 1972, Ann James Massey, SWA, CPSA, UKCPS, CLWAC has received recognition and won awards for her drawings utilizing only black colored pencil. Moving from regional to a larger stage in 1990, she entered three national competitions in as many months in New York and won awards in each: The American Artists Professional League, The Allied Artists of America, and Knickerbocker Artists, New York.
Massey owned and operated The Montwood Gallery from 1974 to 1978 and Massey Fine Arts from 1992 to 1994. At the latter, she created and judged two national exhibitions (one being "Masters of Colored Pencil," the first exhibition in the world solely dedicated to colored pencil). In 1994, she closed the second gallery and moved to Paris, France in order to devote more time to her art career, growth and opportunities.
As well as being included in Who's Who in American Art since 1993, Massey has been listed or her work has been shown in twelve books and numerous publications including "The Artist's Magazine (USA)," "American Artist," and “International Artist.” A Charter Member of the Colored Pencil Society of America, she has also served as the first President of the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society.
In 2002, the Art Renewal Center, an online art museum specializing in traditional and classical realism that emphasizes Old Masters as well as 19th century French academic and English Victorian artwork, added Massey to their mix with their selection of 19 of her works: including ten CP drawings. The next year, they named her one of their initial thirty-six artists for their Living Masters Gallery.
Though Massey no longer teaches private lessons (1974-1994), she has taught workshops with NAMTA, Discover Art, the CPSA, etc. and still gives occasional workshops, demonstrations, lectures and private consultations.
