Western Federation of Watercolor Societies (WFWS)

Delegate Update

WSO had six artists accepted for this year’s WFWS Show, by juror Sarah Yeoman.

The awards will be announced on May 7, 2021 on the WFWS YouTube channel at 6 PM Mountain Time. After they are announced, the award winning paintings will be highlighted in the Web Gallery. During the presentation, you will also see videos from the societies delegates as well as from the award winners!

The plan for the evening is to do a live introduction from Salt Lake City, have a few comments from juror Sarah Yeoman, award new Signature memberships, then the awards followed by the exhibition slideshow and a toast to the future.

Sarah Yeoman Workshop – Light and Atmosphere in Watercolor

Sarah Yeoman, AWS, our juror, will be offering a ZOOM workshop from May 3-5 from 9am – 3pm. All WFWS members are invited at the UWS fee of $200. Spread the word to other WFWS members who may not have entered the Exhibition. They may be interested in Sarah’s workshop. She gets rave reviews as an instructor. Check her out in the April/May 2021 Plein Air and In the Footsteps of the River School.

You can register directly from the website.
