Misha Ambrosia, from Bowling Green, Kentucky, has agreed to judge the show this year. Misha, originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, began her interest in art at the young age of five. She had her early training in drawing, pastel, and oil painting. She received a scholarship to Delgado College, and continues to this day attending workshops and art education classes. These days Misha works in all media, but her primary interest is in watercolor. Her works have won many awards and reside in both private and public collections. Misha has agreed to do a critique for “Arts in Bloom” artists on Thursday, April 24th, immediately following the judging.
