President’s Letter

Hello NFWS friends!

Our 2017-2018 season is almost complete at Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society, and hasn’t it been grand! Both our Fall and Spring Exhibitions were big successes. The Spring 2018 Open Members’ Show at the Artists Group Gallery in Buffalo exhibited paintings from 89 members! The Fall 2019 Exhibition of Transparent Watercolor juried by Linda Lucas will be held at the Kenan Center in Lockport.

Our two workshops, Fall 2017 with Linda Frayne Kemp and Spring 2018 with Peggi Nero Habets, were sold out, and enthusiastically received. 

As a heads up, begin your planning now  for the Fall Workshop with Linda Lucas, the third week of October at Kenan Center in Lockport. 

We have a meeting and demonstration on the third Thursday of every month, 7 – 9 pm, September – November, and January – June at the Amherst Community Church, featuring a demonstration by a wonderful artist each month.

June 21st, 2018 brings the return of the Members’ Show Your Art Show at 6:00 at the Amherst Community Church. Each member brings in a painting he/she would like to share, and two of our terrific member/teachers give critiques and suggestions. This will be the 7th year for this event, one we look forward to each year.

Our monthly meetings give us a chance to reconnect with friends, make new friends, and watch a water media painter at work. I know that I am not alone in my belief that I have so much yet to try!

I’m going to borrow from a previous President’s letter because this so aptly captures what our Society means for our community. “We value the coming together of like-minded individuals to express and share through the watercolor medium…” We are open to all, artists in all media, art lovers, and art makers, and we overflow with encouragement and support. Welcome!
