Mission Hills Artist Wins Best of Miniatures Award

| January 2, 2022 | 0 Comments

Ann Slater, an artist and resident of Mission Hills, San Diego, California has won the Best of Miniatures award in the highly competitive December Members Show “Frozen in Place” on display in the San Diego Watercolor Society (SDWS) gallery at 2825 Dewey Road in Liberty Station, San Diego. Slater’s painting entitled “Madame Secretary” was selected by nationally known juror Scott W. Prior for this honor, out of over 200 entries. Prior said of the painting, “I like the design and I love the pattern, it’s really different, it shows a psychedelic bird with a real attitude.”

Ann Slater was born and raised in San Diego.  She received a degree in Mathematics with a minor in Art from San Diego State University.  The next 14 years were spent traveling and working in restaurants. Returning to San Diego she taught at Carlsbad High and at her alma mater, San Diego High School.  Slater credits the SDWS for her growth as an artist.  Animals are a common theme in her watercolors.  Her work creates depth by layering shapes of different sizes.  Eye movement is achieved by directional lines and placement of color. Slater is a signature member of the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies and had a painting selected for this year’s show in Utah.  This is the second Best of Miniatures that Slater has won this year.

The Gallery is currently open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday through Sunday. The works can also be found on the San Diego Watercolor Society’s website at www.sdws.org where the paintings can be both viewed and purchased from the Online Store.
