At the Water Color’s Edge

President’s Message, by Betsy Moritz

Happy fall to all colleagues, friends and watercolor lovers!

The TWS enjoyed a hugely successful 69th National Juried Exhibition in Ingram, TX this year, and I’ve got to say: “All the entries were amazing!” Thank you to everyone who made this event such a big success.
So as 2018 winds down, our vision and efforts are totally focused on making our landmark 70th National Exhibition in 2019 a success. You know what that means fellow artists: keep those watercolor papers hot, those colors blending, and those brushes moving because before you know it the call for entries for 2019 will arrive. (Entry information will be mailed to all active members and will be posted to the TWS website as soon as available.)

More specifically, the TWS 70th Exhibition will be held at the University of the Incarnate Word/Semmes Student Art Gallery in San Antonio in May 2019. Our esteemed judge for the event will be Carol Carter from St. Louis, Missouri. The judge will review the show on May 28, 2019 and will have a free public demonstration that evening at the Episcopal Church of Reconciliation in San Antonio. A workshop will be conducted on May 29, 30 and 31 of 2019 where Carol will provide an outstanding interactive experience for all registered attendees. The flyer for this workshop will be posted on our TWS website shortly so please look for it and sign up early as spaces are limited.

Your TWS relies on the unselfish contributions of many member volunteers and understandably, organizing a major exhibition takes time and heartfelt dedication. We are always looking for interested individuals to offer help and I would encourage you to contact me if you wish to do so.

I look forward to meeting you at the 70th National Exhibit in San Antonio in May of 2019,
Keep on painting.
