This year’s Juror is the talented professional artist and instructor, Bryan Wilson.

Bryan Wilson grew up between New Jersey and Georgia. It was in Georgia, at the age of 16, that he began his artistic career. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Studio Art with a Minor in Graphic Design from Morris Brown College.


After graduating college, he became an in-house Graphic Designer for Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA. After a couple years, and getting married, he and his wife relocated to Charlotte, NC, where he began teaching art at a public school and obtained his teaching credentials at University of North Carolina-Charlotte.


It was in 2012 that Bryan decided to take his painting, and picture making, ability to another level by pursuing his MFA in Drawing/Painting at the Academy of Art University where he graduated in 2015. He is now exhibiting throughout the Southeast alongside other distinguished artists. 


He is currently showing work at Foster’s Frame and Art in Huntersville, NC and Coffey and Thompson Gallery in Charlotte, NC.
