Call for Entries

We are excited to announce that this year’s Saint Louis Watercolor Society’s 22nd Annual Juried Exhibition will be held at Norton’s Fine Art & Framing gallery, 2025 S. Big Bend Blvd., St. Louis, Missouri.

The STLWS 22nd Annual Juried Exhibition is open to all water media artists. Artists may enter up to two entries.  The exhibition is “juried” for acceptance as well as judged for awards, and we are honored to have as our juror/judge Yuki Hall, TWSA, OWS, WPA, an award-winning watercolor artist known for her loose style and impressionistic approached to working with the medium. She emphasizes simplicity, effective use of tonal value patterns, fluidity, and execution of confident brush strokes.

Online entry registration will open on March 7 and end on March 25.  Visit the website and select the “Exhibits” tab to read more about the show (you must click on the “Exhibits” tab for the page to open with all the information about the show), then select the “Call for Entries” sub-tab under the “Exhibits” tab to access the Prospectus. Please read the Prospectus carefully as failure to comply may lead to disqualification. The “Receiving” tab on the “Call for Entries” page will be posted live on March 7 and allow you to enter your artwork.  After the entries are judged, artwork accepted in the exhibition will be posted on the website on March 31. Juried artwork must be delivered to Norton’s Fine Art & Framing gallery on April 2, from 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Judging for awards by Yuki Hall will take place in the gallery on April 4th.  Award Winners and new Signature members will be notified by phone or email. The Awards Ceremony for award winners and new Signature members (only) will be on April 8, at 4:30 p.m.  The exhibition opens on April 9 and runs until May 7.  Retrieval of artwork at the gallery will be from May 10 – 14, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

We look forward to receiving your entries and appreciate your continued support.

  1. Shipping and receiving of artwork was not addressed. Would you please send me that information? Thankyou

    1. Carol,

      Entry to the STLWS 22nd Annual Juried Exhibition must be done online – go to the website and select Exhibits. Scroll down on the page until you see the 2022 STLWS Annual Juried Exhibition paragraph. First read the prospectus and then select the Receiving link. You will complete the entry form and submit a jpg of your artwork (please title the jpg with your name and the title of the artwork). Entries will be judged and artwork juried into the show will be posted on the website on March 31. All accepted artwork must be delivered to Norton’s Fine Art & Framing gallery, 2025 S Big Bend Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63117 on April 2nd between the hours of 10 :30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. If you are shipping your artwork it must be received at the gallery on April 2nd and it would be a good idea to let the gallery know to expect your shipment on that date.

      I hope this answers your questions. Thank you for coming to us with your inquiry.
