SCVWS AWARDS CEREMONY



Today was the reception and awards ceremony for the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society's annual show. It was a gorgeous day and there was an excellent turn out of artists, family, friends and patrons of the society.

First off, the committee did an outstanding job. The show is beautifully hung, the refreshment table, festively decorated, was overflowing with delicious treats. Wine was flowing, live music was playing as everyone was greeting old friends and meeting new people. Everything ran smoothly. This organization is fortunate to have such a wealth of active and exceptionally talented volunteers.

I was excited to learn that my painting was awarded 2nd place!!! It is a very high honor. There were so many truly outstanding paintings in this year's show. A very difficult job for the juror. We were fortunate to have such a national figure in the watercolor world, Christopher Schink, take on the task. The show is up for a month, so if you are in the area, be sure and stop by. Everyone gets a chance to be a juror and select their favorite painting in the show. People's Choice will be announced after all the votes are counted. The show is at the Rose Shenson gallery on the grounds of the Triton Museum in Santa Clara.

Congratulations! Your outfit certainly coordinates perfectly with your painting. You are a 3D extension of your painting.

Myrna said...

Thank you all, for visiting my blog, taking the time to comment and being so generous in your good wishes. Jane, with a name like Wacknov, there have been worse distortions than your pronunciation. I will share with you in person on Thursday, some of the more embarrassing moments. Frankly, you can call me anything you want if there is an award involved!
