We are delighted to announce that DC contemporary artist Lenny Campello will serve as judge of this year’s 2022 Paint the Town Labor Day Show. Known internationally for narrative-driven paintings and drawings and technology-infused displays, Campello has worked as an artist, gallerist, curator, art critic, instructor, author, and arts blogger. He was named one of DC’s “most interesting people” by the Washington CityPaper.

Born in Cuba, he grew up in the United States and studied art at the University of Washington School of Art in Seattle. Prolific from an early age, Campello has won national and international awards, exhibited internationally in galleries and museums, and has works in private collections in Spain, Portugal, and the United States. He also co-owned galleries in the DC area. He is a prominent local art critic, with reviews published in The Washington Post, local newspapers and arts magazines, and has made numerous appearances on television and radio. Likewise, he has curated or juried art shows in the DC area.

The Paint the Town Labor Day Show is one of the region’s largest and longest-running art shows composed of all local artists. The show will be open to the public Saturday-Monday, September 3-5. Campello will be on site on Friday, September 2 for closed-door judging and Saturday, September 3 to judge the plein air competition and present awards.
