News from Janine Helton

Janine Helton just learned she is in The Art of Watercolour, No 30, a French art magazine for watercolor artists.  The magazine has a readers competition in each issue and Janine’s painting was selected for issue No 30, shown on page 6, under READERS’ COMPETITION, More laureates & more advice.  (By the way “Janine’s Comment” under the painting is by Janine Gallizia, the magazine’s editor.)

Congratulations Janine!  You now have international recognition.

Framations Custom Framing and Art Gallery – Brilliant Color Exhibit

Brilliant Color
Juror:  Terri Shay
Mar 9th – April 19th

Opening reception March 9th, 6 – 8 pm.​
Wine and snacks provided.

Periodically over the last year, Framations has introduced exhibit themes that highlight the elements of art, which are line, shape, space, texture, value, form and color.  In turn, they have arrived at color.  The hue, saturation and intensity of color determine its overall feel or impact.  Here they asked artists to focus on the power and significance of color in their imagery.  It may be bold or subtle, warm or coll, calming or exciting.  Color can speak volumes!

Saint Louis Watercolor members accepted in the show are Christine Fischer, Gloria Henderson, Suzanne Galli Koenen, Annette McGarrahan, Linda Meyer, Shirley Nachtrieb, Mary Riney, Lee Walter and Linda Wilmes.

This is one of three of Linda Wilmes’ watercolors on exhibit in the show.
