JUROR:​ ​Michael​ ​Dunlavey Michael returned to watercolor painting after a forty-year career as a graphic designer, environmental designer and as a restaurant designer. Since his retirement he has had six gallery shows and been included in the Crocker Art Museum juried Art Auction for the past six years. Drawing his inspiration from his extensive travel experiences throughout the world, he is intent on capturing the beauty of the vibrant cities and villages he has been privileged to visit. Combining his strong sense of color with his love of the sea, he has sought to portray the iconic nature of the wooden boats that are rapidly disappearing from the daily scene. His other obsession is the barns that use to be so prolific in the landscape of the west, his critical eye drawn by their simple shapes and weathered exterior. Michael has demonstrated a deep love for and commitment to the arts and has a very extensive background in art and design. He received his B.A. Degree in Art as well as his Masters Degree in Art from California State University, Sacramento. He sat on the Board of Directors of the Crocker Art Museum Association for eleven years and served on the selection committee that chose the architect for the new Crocker Art Museum Expansion. He also served on the Major Gift Access Committee for the Crocker, which raised over $95 million to build the new wing that opened in 2010. He was on the Board of Directors of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation for ten years, during which he served on the Arts Advisory Committee for Advancing Sacramento Arts, which generated a sustained funding stream for small and medium-sized arts organizations in the Sacramento reg
