President’s Letter

Hello NFWS friends!

There is sun shining today and the snow is melting. I have heard the cardinals singing high in the maple trees. Can spring be far behind?Let’s hope not. I also hope many of you havebeen able to get your COVID shots. What a trial that has been. I have had an appointment forMarch 23rd for two months. It can’t come fastenough.

On February 18th we had a wonderful demo with Roger DeMuth. Not only did we get treated to his painting of a Nantucket street scene, but views of the museum of New York architecture and paintings that he is creating in his home in Cazenovia southeast of Syracuse. He said if you ever head along route 20, to stop and see it. The demo is on our Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society YouTube Channel if youdidn’t get to see it.

By the time you get this, you will have received the information about the spring virtual workshop with Keiko Tanabe and if the past is any indication, it will be too late to sign up. But you will be able to see her Zoom demo on May 20th at 7 p.m. Look for information and the link at the NFWS website.

The Exhibition Committee has extended the deadline for entries into our spring non-juried watercolor show to midnight on March 14th. Again, contact Deb Meier at 716-316-1029 or Carol Siracuse at 716-867-9044 if you need help photographing your painting or uploading your image. The show itself will be mounted at Artist Group Gallery from April 23 to May 28. And will be available on the NFWS website.

So, think spring!

Ann Sessions, President
