A Former Member Has Passed Away

We extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Mary Ann Maritz who passed away on December 14, 2018.

Mary Ann was an award-winning artist with the St. Louis Artists Guild and the St. Louis Watercolor Society.  While an active member of the STLWS from 2000 to 2008, Mary Ann had her paintings accepted in the Annual Juried Exhibitions each year from 2000 to 2008, and won prizes for her entries in the Big Splash exhibitions in 2000, 2002, and 2006.  Her love of art lead her to become very active at the St. Louis Art Museum and serve as a docent for many years.  She was a dedicated civic leader and volunteer with many organizations in the St. Louis area.  She will be missed by all she touched.

Upcoming Alicia Farris Workshops & News

Hello Artists!

Happy New Year!! Hope you have enjoyed the holiday season, the blessings that accompany it and are remembering to feel the joy in the air!

If you are planning to continue your painting journey with me, this is just a little heads up of upcoming Missouri and St. Louis area workshops early in 2019:

January 31 and Feb. 1 – Splatter Studio in Springfield, Mo “STREET SCAPES IN WATERCOLOR” – taking wait list – contact me to be added.

By now, perhaps you have read my interview in the 33rd issue of The Art of Watercolour magazine.  What a wonderful honor for me and a pretty fun way to cap off the year!  We just NEVER know where our journey will take us, do we??


Thank you, hope to get to paint with you again soon.  HAPPY PAINTING!!!
