An Invitation

Lee Walter has watercolor paintings and illustrations at the Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center during the month of February.

Here is a link to a post of the artwork in the exhibit and some photos of Lee’s exhibition and some of her Self Help Painters friends who came out to see the show. A fun fact…each of Lee’s back yard scenes are linked. A chipmunk going off to the right will be on the left on the next one, a cardinal on the right side of the painting…the next has a red feather. Don’t miss this exhibition.

STLWS 2023 Signature Member Exhibition

Saturday evening, February 4th, was the opening reception of the Saint Louis Watercolor Society’s 2023 Signature Member Exhibition at Norton’s Fine Art & Framing gallery.  There was a nice turn out for the opening and the show is beautiful.  Norton’s has a People’s Choice Award ballot box at the gallery for viewers to participate in and will award the winner with a prize at the close of the show.  We hope you will go see the show with your friends and family if you were unable to attend the opening.  Exhibiting artists were also invited to bring up to three pieces of their unframed artwork to the gallery for a bin sale during the exhibition, so don’t miss this opportunity to acquire some great artwork. There have already been several sales.
