About our Jurors

Jurors will be Eileen Casey, Sergio Roffo & Vcevy Strekalovsky.


               Eileen Casey, Sandwich Artist, SHS Graduate and 2021 Best in Show winner, continues to teach pastel in Barnstable, Cotuit and Chatham. She is a International Association of Pastel Societies Eminent Pastelist, is a signature member of several national and regional pastel & art organizations, and is an active board member of the Pastel Painters of Cape Cod. Her work focuses on Nature and is a source of inspiration, sparking her imagination as she paints & draws nests, trees, water & landscapes.  Of her winning piece, Pond Light, Casey says, “I have painted more than a few representational local waterscapes and backyard koi and lily ponds. This painting was a departure for me as I simplified the view of light sparkling on the water & plants at a nearby pond… an abstracted interpretation of the scene using unexpected colors and simple shapes, rather than a realistic rendering. It was fun to create it with a variety of soft pastels on sanded paper.”

 

Sergio Roffo, a Scituate resident, holds the honor of being one of the youngest artists to be designated a "Copley Master" by the Copley Society of Boston. An elected "Fellows" member of the American Society of Marine Artists, an elected Art Renewal Center "Living Master" and an elected member of the Guild of Boston Artists.

“ Early in my career I was inspired by the early American painters such as Albert Bierstadt, Fitz Henry Lane and so many others and still am to this day. I’m inspired daily as I walk on the shoreline of a beach or in the forest or the mountains when I view the light. It’s constant...you never stop looking. I try to convey a sense of relaxed calmness in all of my paintings. To capture that elusive essence that is nature. A moment in time. It’s a characteristic that defines all of my work. We will always be students of nature. Brush stroke by brush stroke, Nature calls us back to capture the mood.”

 

Vcevy Strekalovsky is a third-generation painter of Russian heritage who graduated from Middlebury College in 1960, where he studied with noted Vermont watercolor artist Arthur K.D. Healy. In 1963, he received a Masters Degree in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. He has since studied painting with artists John Kilroy, Carolyn Anderson, Michael Lynch, Ken Auster and Ned Jacob. Vcevy has exhibited locally at the South Street Gallery in Hingham, Oceanside 17 Gallery in Hull, South Shore Art Center, North River Art Society, Scituate Art Association; and also at the Lyme Art association in Connecticut, the Copley Society in Boston, and the Southern Vermont Art Center. He enjoys participating in plein air events and painting figures, portraits, still life, and wildlife and livestock in their natural setting, and finds the large community of artists on the South Shore to be energizing.  Having lived in Hingham since 1969, Vcevy has a short commute to his firm Strekalovsky Architecture Inc.
