AMERICAN WATERCOLOR SOCIETY'S 2014 ANNUAL AWARD SHOW / SALMAGUNDI CLUB
The American Watercolor Society is one of the oldest art organizations in the country and had it’s beginning in 1866 to promote the art of watercolor painting in America. Each year the society holds a juried international exhibition of the best contemporary watercolor artists throughout the world. AWS welcomes more than 3,000 visitors to it’s Annual Exhibition each year and is noted for its outstanding quality and professionalism. The month of April is a magical month for me as I have been attending the AWS exhibition every year since 1958.The event showcases paintings by many of the foremost watercolor artists in the world.
I started painting in ernest 4 years ago, after retiring from a full time career as an advertising art director in New York City. And I began entering this pristidgous art exhibition the last 2 years and was pleased when I was selected to be in The Annual American Watercolor Society’s International Exhibition for 2014. One of the highlights of my being in the exhibition was to attend the Opening Reception shown here and meeting many of the artists and seeing my painting up there with all the other 147 selected paintings. A proud moment to be sure.
