The Sierra Watercolor Society presents:

"In the Limelight" 


"Legacy-Reduced' by Ronnie Rector


Fellow Artists!

Our annual judged show is right around the corner. Get those brushes out and create and/or finish those master pieces. As always, in our judged show paintings will be submitted in five categories (please see the registration form).

SWS is privileged to have Frank Ebert judge our annual show after he finishes teaching a 3-day class. This year our show will return to the Sparks Heritage Museum.

A few more words about our judge:

 A painter's painter, Frank Eber works in a direct, loose style influenced by the Old World masters. Typical in his art are color mixes and light that evoke nostalgia while remaining absolutely in the present. Frank's watercolor workshops reach beyond technique, encouraging individual expression and observing the elusive balance of forces that create beauty in painting. All levels are welcome but students should have an understanding of the watercolor medium and of simple one point perspective. Frank stresses a solid foundation in the basics, “…so that our focus is on creating timeless art. An emotional link is necessary in our work, as well as the connection to the vibrancy of everything we paint.” www.frankeber.com 


We will have a “In the Limelight” reception on Thursday, October 27th from 3-5pm. Refreshments will be provided. 

As always, you can enter two framed paintings (only one can be full sheet, framed*), and up to 4 bin art per artist. All art must be for sale!
