SWS Online Registration!

We are continuing with required online entry for this and future SWS Exhibits.  

Instead of filling out the form on the dropoff day, we request you click the "Register Now" link below, and enter your information digitally no later than Apr 24th!

This time we prefer you mail your check payment, payable to SWS to: SWS, c/o Laurel Sweigart, P.O. Box 70564, Reno, NV, 89570.

The SWS will not accept paintings on May 1st without prior online entry. Please contact the Exhibit Chairs if you need assistance registering online. 

Online entry will allow the exhibit team many streamlined opportunities for managing the exhibit, including:

  • Anticipate hanging requirements for coordination with the venue
  • Produce professional gallery title cards, painting labels, and artist statement cards with a simple mail merge 
  • Communicate reminders with exhibiting artists about dropoff/pickup dates and other exhibit specific information
  • Create a historical record of the exhibit data for future SWS Exhibit planning and coordination

Thank you for helping our fabulous SWS organization strive to make our process more efficent for our dedicated volunteers.

We know this is a new process, so please do not hesitate to ask for help and clarification from the Exhibit Chairs.
