My Painting is Accepted!

I am happy to share the news that my new painting "In The Spotlight" has been accepted into the Tennessee Watercolor Society's 35th Exhibition! The show juror is noted watercolor artist John Salminen, and he has chosen 55 paintings from artists all around Tennessee for this prestigeous show.

As a statewide organization, the Society moves the Exhibition to a different location every two years, and this year it takes place in Knoxville. It will be hung at The Emporium, 100 South Gay Street (the main downtown street). The show opens Saturday, May 21 and runs through June 24, 2016.

The selection process was done by digital entries. The juror will judge the actual paintings on May 15th for awards and for inclusion in a traveling show (a smaller selection of the exhibited paintings which tours the state for the rest of the year.)

I am proud to say that I am a Signature Member of TnWs. My artwork has been accepted for the past 4 biennial shows as well as for the traveling shows. Previously two per artist could be accepted, but only one of two entries is allowed since 2014, giving more members a chance at a slot. Here are my watercolor paintings previously chosen:

2008 - Out to Pasture
2010 - Nature Paints a Picture and Decadence
2012 - Jerry Van, Music Man and Jesus Saves
2014 - Elles Tobacco Planter
