About the Juror, Carlton Fletcher


Carlton Fletcher, acclaimer painter and respected educator, has never veered from his original philosophy – which reflects his knowledge of art history and his own position within that history. Like Poussin, Claude, and Turner, he uses the landscape as a metaphor to let us see our world anew. He is an artist in search of that right moment when physical reality is transformed, usually by light, into an ideal representation. His work affirms the continuing power of drawing and painting as means of translating experience into art. Fletcher received his degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design, and American University, and is one of the founding members of the Washington Studio School.

“What remains constant and reliable is that–whatever I thought I intended at the outset–what the painting wants to be, and how it wants to get there, only comes to light by doing the work.”
