At the Water Color’s Edge

President’s Message, by Betsy Moritz

Dear Fellow Artists,

It is an honor and a privilege to have been elected President of the Texas Watercolor Society at our annual meeting in June. I enthusiastically look forward to serving you and to the challenges that lie ahead, and I thank you for your support. I would like to reach out to our immediate past president, Mary Quiros, who continuously worked for the best interests of the TWS and ensured that our mission in pursuit of elevating watercolor artistry was successful. Mary, thank you so much!

I’m looking forward to working with all of you over the next two years. My vision is simple: to advance our common passion for watercolor. I would like to thank all of the amazing volunteers that make up our new Board and committees. Also a special thanks to all previous volunteers who helped make our organization great.
Our 68th Annual Exhibit 2017 entries were sensational and we would like to give a shout out to all of our sponsors. Congratulations to the winners and all who were included in the exhibit!

Our juror, Soon Y. Warren, taught an awesome workshop; see our Instagram page for details and images. The Patterson-Appleton Center in Denton provided a beautiful venue and a wonderful experience for workshop attendees and for the exhibit.

Michael Holter returns again this fall to do another workshop, this time on Watercolor Impressions: Landscapes. Michael welcomes novice and advanced students and tailors the experience to individual’s needs. Don’t miss it.

Congratulations to the eight TWS members whose work will be published in the upcoming issue of Splash 19 . We are excited for them to get such a remarkable recognition.
