Call for Art

The Saint Louis Watercolor Society’s 20th Annual Juried Exhibition, open to members and non-members, is coming up this spring in April at Missouri Artists on Main, 321 S Main St, St Charles, MO. 

This annual exhibit is an opportunity for Saint Louis Watercolor Society members to achieve Signature Status, which is awarded to a member who has been accepted into two juried shows within a ten-year period while still maintaining his or her continuous membership in the STLWS.  The exhibition is “juried” for acceptance as well as judged for awards, and the juror/judge will be the renowned artist, Fealing Lin.  

Show entry is by hand delivery.  Up to two paintings, completed within the last three years, may be submitted.  Notice of artwork not accepted in the show will be given by phone or email. Award winners will be notified by phone.  

The entry fees are $15 for 1 entry and $25 for 2 entries for members, and $65 for 1 entry and $75 for 2 entries for nonmembers. All paintings must be for sale and a commission will be retained by the gallery.  Note: the maximum framed dimensions on the longest side shall not exceed 32 1/4 inches.  Complete rules for exhibitions are on our website, www.stlws.org, along with a newly revised exhibition entry form to download.

Our catalog will include a small image of the artwork accepted in the show so we ask that you email to annualexhibit@gmail.com a small jpg of each piece or artwork you will be entering along with your name, title, medium, and price of each piece. 

Receiving will be on Saturday, March 30th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The Opening Reception will be Friday evening, April 5th, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. with awards announced at 7:30 p.m.  Retrieval will be on Sunday, April 28th, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Monday, April 29th, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
