Call to Artists – Associate & Juried Members

Spring Prospectus 2017
Spring Registration 2017

Our Spring Show, April 3-28, will be open to Associate and Juried members, and will be held at Boomerang on Main Street in Vancouver. Take-in for the show will be on Saturday, April 1, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Pickup of paintings will be on Saturday, April 29, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. A First Friday reception will be held on April 7, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Awards will be presented at 7 p.m. that evening. It has always been a pleasure for me to organize and mount the SWWS shows—that is until the last one in fall 2016, because at the end of a two-week registration period only one person had registered. The next week was a really scary one for me. We had moved the show to a much bigger venue and it was looking like we weren’t going to have any paintings to hang. But thanks to repeated pleas from Nona Scheurer to the membership, we ended up with 80 paintings and a really nice show. Let’s make this Spring Show an even better one. PLEASE plan in advance to enter so that I don’t have another week of sleepless nights. You have three months to get your work done. Let’s make this the best SWWS show ever. The registration form is on page 9 of this newsletter.
