Juror: Joey P. Mánlapaz

DC artist Joey P. Mánlapaz is a long-time educator, earning her M.F.A. in painting from The
George Washington University. She is Associate Faculty at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at George Washington University and lecturer at The Art League School in Alexandria, VA where she teaches all levels of drawing and painting. Her latest passion is to give art workshops to the older population at assisted living and memory care facilities. She is widely collected in the U.S. and abroad. Breaking from the photorealist tradition of NY artists Tom Blackwell and Richard Estes, her style is more painterly, infused with the psychological breadth of Edward Hopper, coupled with the visual mystery of Alfred Hitchcock. The D.C. government currently owns 43 of her paintings, by far the largest collector of her work. In 2013, the U.S. Library of Congress acquired her personal papers and other memorabilia for permanent inclusion in the Asian American Pacific Islander Collection. She is recipient of numerous awards in recognition of her works. Outside of the classroom and her studio, Joey serves as juror and curator to national and regional shows.
