    ABOUT THE JUROR OF AWARDS

    Ft. Collins, Colorado artist Dave A. Santillanes ….…” capturing the essence of a landscape involves a realistic rendering of color, light and atmosphere.  This requires direct observation and is why most of my paintings begin in the field with a plein air study.   But studying the physical aspects of nature isn’t the only reason I paint outdoors; for me, the sensory experience of being there is equally important. There’s no better way to get to know a place on earth than to sit for a couple of hours and contemplate it while painting. This intense observation brings a spiritual intimacy with the scene that can’t be achieved in mere passing and allows me to “speak” with complete sincerity in each painting.”  Dave is an Artist’s artist…We’re delighted that he will join us in Galveston, judge the exhibition and teach a 3-day workshop May 14, 15, 16 in the Dallas Ft. Worth area.  To learn more about our juror and to see  some of his latest work, please visit his website, www.dasanti.com



    ABOUT GALVESTON HISTORICAL FOUNDATION AND THE EVENT

    Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) was formed as the Galveston Historical Society in 1871 and merged with a new organization formed in 1954 as a non-profit entity devoted to historic preservation and history in Galveston County. Over the last sixty years, GHF has expanded its mission to encompass community redevelopment, historic preservation advocacy, maritime preservation, coastal resiliency and stewardship of historic properties. GHF embraces a broader vision of history and architecture that encompasses advancements in environmental and natural sciences and their intersection with historic buildings and coastal life, and conceives of history as an engaging story of individual lives and experiences on Galveston Island from the 19th century to the present day. Throughout the year,  thousands of volunteers assist Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) with its goal to “preserve and revitalize the architectural, cultural and maritime heritage of Galveston Island”.  The staff, members and volunteers work hand in hand daily supporting this vital non-profit foundation.
