STLWS 24th Annual Juried Exhibition Opens

The Saint Louis Watercolor Society’s 24th Annual Juried Exhibtion held its Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony on April 13th at the St. Louis Public Library – Central Library in the Carnegie Gallery. The exhibition is beautiful and we had a very nice turn out for the event. Our juror, Susan Blackwood, sent us her comments on each of the award-winning paintings which were included in the awards presentation. We also presented our new Signature Status members their certificates.

We thank everyone who worked so hard to make this exhibition possible and the library for being so accommodating and welcoming to us. They even arranged a tour of the library after the opening event closed. We are thrilled to be showing in such a prestigious location this year. Our Central Library is a St. Louis treasure!

We will share some photos taken at the opening but also want to direct you to the website>EXHIBITS tab>2024 AJE. Click on the 2024 AJE image and a summary of the exhibition will open for you to enjoy.
