CJ Muggs Change Out Rescheduled

Mary Friedman has asked that we reschedule the CJ Muggs change out (for receiving and pick up of paintings) to Wednesday, October 27, from 8 to 9 p.m., and Thursday, October 28, from 8:30 to 9 a.m.  We are asking members to submit paintings for the restaurant with any theme and paintings for the banquet room with winter themes.  Please participate.  This is a great opportunity to sell a painting without a commission.

Mary would also appreciate having some help on both days.  Please email her if you can volunteer to stay and help on either of the days.


STLWS Plein Air Event at The Muny

Saint Louis Watercolor Society members met at The Muny in Forest Park on Friday, September 17, to paint plein air.  Spencer Meagher’s video demo (offered to STLWS members for the month of September) featuring the Nathan Frank Memorial Bandstand at The Muny inspired this gathering.  Here are some photos the group shared with us.
