President’s Letter

Welcome back NFWS Members,

It is good to be back as a group even if it will be remotely for a while. The Board worried about the COVID situation when we planned this year’s demonstrations and workshops. And we were able to secure demonstrators with Zoom experience through February at least. We will continue to monitor the situation for what we do in the spring. 

We will have Iowa artist Michael Broshar as our demonstrator on September 16, 2021 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. His website states, “My architectural background leads me towards painting architectural subjects, but I find interesting subjects in the landscape around me. I travel the countryside of Iowa and find the rural landscapes, small town and city structures, and the industrial areas of the rivers to be compelling.” Look for the Zoom invitation in your email soon.  

Pam Wenger will be our fall workshop presenter, also via Zoom. Her portrait work looks amazing and I am sure those who have signed up for the October workshop will enjoy it. The rest of us will see her demonstration on October 21, again via Zoom. 

Many of you have entered work into our fall transparent watercolor show which will be at Kenan Center from October 17 – November 14. If your work is selected by Pam Wenger, make sure you drop off the work on October 12. The show will be open in person and will also be on the NFWS website. 

We belong to a very talented group of painters. We have many members who have had work accepted into and received awards from important shows. In addition, several members have individual shows at various galleries in and around Buffalo. Make sure you check the NFWS website and look for Carol Siracuse’s emails announcing these. 

Again, I would appreciate any comments you have about the Zoom format we have been using.

Ann Sessions, President
