John Salminen Gallery

“Once I work out the composition, I have a good idea of how I want the painting to look. The painting process becomes a slow march toward this known goal,” says John Salminen. Having won more than 175 major awards in national and international exhibitions, including the American Watercolor Society Gold Medal and the National Watercolor Society Silver Star Award, Salminen often serves as a juror for prestigious contests like our own Artist’s Magazine’s Annual Competition. His paintings have been showcased in more than 20 magazine and book articles, as well. To learn of upcoming exhibitions and to see his workshop schedule, visit his website at
