We are pleased to announce that the STLWS’s 21st Annual Juried Exhibtion is coming up in April at Norton’s Fine Art & Framing, 2025 S Big Bend Rd, St. Louis, MO 63117. We are honored to have Thomas W. Schaller, AWS, NWS, TWSA, as our judge. This exhibition is open to STLWS members and non-members.
We had a nice turnout on February 3rd for Urban Sketching at Kaldi’s Coffee in Chesterfield Valley. We spent time focusing first on three models, sketching each one fairly fast. Then we sketched whoever/whatever we wanted. Here are a few of our sketches.
As the Director of the Illinois Watercolor Society, I would like to invite and encourage your members to enter IWS’s 36th National Exhibition 2020.
