Freedom in Watermedia – a Workshop with Stan Kurth
Hello Fellow Artists;
This is a friendly reminder that it’s time to submit photos of your paintings for entry in the 2015 Western Federation of Watercolor Societies. The deadline for entering is November 15, 2014, which is fast approaching.
We are requesting only emailed digital photos rather than CDs, which will make the process easy and painless for everyone. There is a Prospectus on the AWA website http://azwatercolor.com/wfws/wfws-main/, which can be downloaded and printed. The Prospectus and your entry fee must also be received by November 15th.
If you have difficulty sizing your photos, please read the detailed sizing instructions, which are also on the website.
Please take a few minutes to read the Prospectus thoroughly and submit your entries as soon as possible.
Good luck to everyone!

Hello Fellow AWA Members,
Just a friendly reminder that the first AWA Meeting of the 2014-2015 year is this Thursday, September 11 at 7:00pm. It is being held again this year at the AAG (Arizona Artists Guild) Building located at 18411 N. 7th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ.
7:00 - we socialize, munch on great snacks, sign up for workshops, visit the fun table and socialize some more.
At 7:30 we begin the more “formal” program starting off with introductions, announcements, etc. And then the real exciting part begins. John Erwin will give a demonstration using watercolor, ink and razor blades. He is an enthusiastic painter who is not afraid to try new ideas and new methods in pursuing his work. This is a demonstration you do not want to miss.
I look forward to seeing you all on Thursday. The newsletter is uploaded and HERE for those who may have not received their newsletter yesterday.
Members will meet at 5:15pm in the “back” room of the AAG Building. You are asked to come at 5:00pm so you may have some time to socialize.

Greetings AWA Members! Its time to go through your paintings or to make that big effort to do the ultimate painting for the next AWA show. Digital entries are due in 7 weeks, but don’t put this off until the last minute.
We’re trying a new venue this time in the West Valley Art Museum, which is actually inside Peoria City Hall. Because it is a public space, the city will be inviting members of the public to attend our reception and there will be extra efforts at publicity for this event. There is also a lot of space, so juror Bev Jozwiak and I have been talking about a show of perhaps 80 paintings. This is a good time to earn points toward signature membership.
I will also be looking for people who are interested in helping to check in paintings, to help with the hanging and to plan the reception and awards presentation. There is a rod system in place, so hanging should be easy but will take time with so many paintings. Send an e-mail if you’d like to help.
Let me know if you can’t open the Fall 2014 Prospectus Rev 3 or if you have other questions. Complete details about framing and matting will be sent to all accepted artists.
What are you waiting for? Grab that brush and get to work.
