Chairperson

Candace Zacher

Juror: Madeleine Kelly

An artist and educator, Madeleine Kelly has judged numerous exhibitions. Her studio is in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Madeleine believes art is passion, discovery, evolution and an endless journey and loves to explore the versatility of multiple mediums. Her greatest joys are playing with textures and color. Although her inspirational triggers are everywhere it is often the medium itself that drives her. An award winning exhibitor, she is a signature member of the Philadelphia Water Color Society and Maryland Pastel Society. She has been published in magazines and newspapers including a Philadelphia Inquirer feature, an American Artist Magazine feature, and the Philadelphia Stories Magazine. Her artwork can be seen gracing the set of the recently released feature indie film, “The Suspect.” She serves on the board of both the Haverford Guild of Craftsmen and Philadelphia Water Color Society.
