The Saint Louis Watercolor Society is excited to invite artists to enter their 22nd annual juried exhibition, open to STLWS members and non-members. This will be a virtual exhibition posted on the stlws.org website and YouTube from May 1, 2021 to April 30, 2022.
The exhibition, juried for acceptance as well as judged for awards, is an opportunity for STLWS members to achieve Signature Status, which is awarded to a member who has been accepted into two juried shows within a 10-year period while still maintaining his or her continuous membership in the STLWS. We are honored to have Sandra Strohschein as our juror this year, an award-winning watercolor artist from Northern Michigan.
Exhibition entry will be online only. Entry Submissions begin on April 1 and ends on April 12; judging will be done between April 19 and April 23, the exhibition will be posted on YouTube on May 1 (a link to the YouTube exhibition will be posted on the stlws.org website), award winners will be posted on the stlws.org website on May 1, and the show will close on April 30, 2022. Up to two paintings per artist, completed within the last three years, may be submitted.
