California Watercolor Association National Exhibition

Jan 8, 2016 | Misc | 0 comments

Last night I attended the CWA Artist Reception and Awards for the California Watercolor Association 46th National Exhibition


I have to say, first, that it was an amazingly beautiful and versatile show… a feast for the eyes.  Such variety of subject matter, style and technique.  Watercolor has sure come a long way since I first started some 20 years ago.

Many artists who I’ve admired were part of the exhibition.  I got to meet some of them, Susan Walsh Harper, for one, from Eureka, CA, who is a facebook friend.   What a delightful woman!  I met Cathy Belleville, who’s work was hanging next to mine.  She received the Bronze Award for her painting “Lunch with Icarus”.   I met Steve Walters and Barbara Kemp, Kathleen Ballard and Cara Brown.  David Savellano came up and introduced himself.  A couple of my former students were a part of the show…  Arena Shawn and Barbara Killeen.   Everyone and everything was lovely!

My favorite piece in the show was by Hsiao-Hui Huang, “Orchid Melody”.  But, there were so many amazing paintings!

I was thrilled to be a part of it, and to have received special recognition in the Salis International, Inc. Award.  Dick Cole, Awards Juror, was the presenter… Here I am with him, below.

What a great venue too, right in the Cannery Galleries on Leavenworth St in San Francisco.  The show runs from Jan 5 – Feb 28, 2016.



Thank you, California Watercolor Association!
