NFWS Fall and Winter 2020 Events are canceled, but the Fall Members Exhibition is going forward with inspired energy!

The Executive Committee of the Board of NFWS has decided to cancel face-to-face demonstrations, at least until January 2021. This includes the demonstration by Sarah Yeoman, our October workshop artist. Our primary concern is the health and welfare of our membership. We know that many of you not only enjoy and are inspired by our wonderful monthly demonstrations, but also look forward to the opportunity to socialize with your friends and colleagues in the watercolor community. Since this fellowship and the ability to enjoy our delicious mid-demo food would not be possible as normal, it was decided to cancel the demos. However, we are researching ways we could possibly provide demos on You-Tube, our facebook page and through our NFWS website.

The Fall Workshop with Sarah Yeoman is going ahead. Registration materials can be accessed here. It will be an online Zoom Workshop from October 10 – 12, 2020.

 The submission period for the Fall 2020 Members Watermedia Exhibition ended August 31, 2020. The exhibition will be both in person at the Carnegie Art Center, and online on our NFWS website.

Thank you for being members of NFWS and for entering our shows and supporting our members, and our mission – to promote interest in and education about transparent watercolor.

Make art and stay safe!
