STLWS 26th Annual Membership Awards Exhibition – Big Splash 2023

Our exhibition opened last night at Norton’s Fine Art & Framing gallery with a reception and awards ceremony.  Our juror of awards, Alicia Farris, came to the opening and spoke about each painting she selected for an award and what drew her to the painting.  It was a lovely event and a show we can be very proud of.  Don’t miss seeing the paintings in person; the show closes on October 7th.

Here are some photos of the opening reception.

Note: Rose came to the opening (little brunette girl).
