Urban Sketchers St. Louis invited STLWS members to join them at the Missouri History Museum on Saturday, Jan. 21, from 10 am to 12:30 pm. The throw-down was at noon. Only dry media was allowed. And they had a special challenge: Make a drawing of something there with your non-dominant hand.
Linda Thompson said, “The Missouri History Museum is a great place to sketch, but you have to work hard at not reading all the interesting exhibits. What a fun place!”
The group had a good time sketching. Here are some photos from their outing.
Françoise Olivier shared exciting news with us and sends her best wishes to the STLWS and the members she knew while living here.
Her painting, Migration II, was accepted in the 156th International Exhibition of the American Watercolor Society, juried by Judi Betts, AWS, Ken Call, AWS, Ken Goldman, AWS, Eric Wiegardt, AWS, DF, and Antonio Masi, AWS, DF. The exhibition will be held from Apr 3 – 28, 2023 at the Salmagundi Club in New York City, with a reception on Apr 11th.
This was one of Françoise’s paintings from her “36 Views of St. Louis” exhibition at the St. Louis Central Library in May and June of 2022, and is her third acceptance into the American Watercolor Society’s Annual International Exhibitions which allows her to become an AWS Signature Member. We congratulate Françoise on this wonderful achievement.
