We shall interrupt our series of featured members with this bit of breaking news:
Our IWS Canada Regional Director, Anne McCartney, has received news today that her painting ‘Art for Art’s Sake’ has been selected for the Gold Medal of Honor, i.e. the top award, at the American Watercolor Society’s 151st juried international exhibition this year.
Says Anne, “I am black and blue all over I can’t stop pinching myself”. This is the kind of excitement all of us would feel in her position. The award itself is worth, aside from the prestige, $4000 US. The exhibition takes place at the well-known Salmagundi Club in New York City from April 9 to April 28, 2018.
We are truly thrilled for Anne, and so lucky to have her on our team. In addition, she will be a juror for our own IWS Canada/CSPWC international exhibition ‘A Symphony in Watercolour’, this fall in Richmond Hill, Ontario. The deadline is March 20 – don’t forget to enter!
