Here are some photos from the Saint Louis Watercolor Society’s Fall Retreat, October 8 – 10th, at the Toddhall Retreat & Conference Center. What a lovely way to take a break, relax and commune with fellow artists, while painting indoors or out in a beautiful setting. It looks like a good time was had by all! We can also see some negative painting by artists who took the Linda Kemp workshop.
Tonight was the opening of our 2018 Big Splash at Norton’s Fine Art and Framing gallery, 2025 S Big Bend Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63117. There was quite a turn out and the show is stunning. Robin Hirsch-Steinhoff, Artistic Director, Art Saint Louis, was our juror this year and selected 13 paintings for awards. The People’s Choice Award will be determined at the close of the show when the ballots are counted. Congratulations go out to all the award winners. We also want to thank all the STLWS volunteers and members who made this show possible, along with the staff at Norton’s Fine Art and Framing.
The show runs through October 27th so please go back with your friends and family to enjoy the artwork by our accomplished group of artists.

Another lovely setting for the urban sketchers at Defiance Ridge Vineyards today. The threat of rain may have scared off some but here are the artists that enjoyed the day and some photos they wanted to share with us.
