In October 2018, we approved WSO active membership privileges to 29 artists. These artists vary in levels of expertise, technique and style; and, not surprisingly, come from rural and urban areas all over mid and western Oregon. We will have a slide presentation of their images at the 2019 Spring Convention in Portland, and we will also welcome them at a special New Member meeting on Friday afternoon, April 5, 2019. Their name badges will be especially noted to indicate they are new WSO Members. Make a point to say “Hello” to these new members during the convention weekend.

Please look at the new active member list in the November 2018 Watermark to see who lives in your area. Invite them to a critique, to coffee, to your studio or to visit your favorite gallery. We want to be sure that they feel welcome and become a vital part of this Society.
