1.Just another reminder that the deadline for the NSWS Juried National Watermedia Show is July 1, 2015 in Hopkins. This will be the first year of this Minnesota National Show and so many opportunities abound for artists in merchandize and monetary awards.All artists can apply, follow the directions on the prospectus found on not necessary, many artists choose to join the NorthStar Watermedia Society to also get in on perks with the membership. 

Digital art submission is so nice and easy.   Juried just means the judge carefully hand-picks the show from the online submission pieces.  Awards winners are selected after the show is hung at Hopkins Center for the Arts, Hopkins, MN.   Watermedia is a big category.   Many of you are very proficient in your water based discipline.  You can do this!

Kathy Braud, Kerry Kupferschmidt and Dan Mondloch all paint in watermedia (watercolor, gouache and acrylics), but they all have distinctly different styles and approaches.  All three are members of the Central Minnesota Watercolorists group in St. Cloud MN.   Hope you can come visit this beautiful display and see what brings these longtime painters together, what makes each of their work unique, and learn about what inspires them to paint.   Each artist has been able to display a large assortment of new works and the presentation is very nice.


Dan gave a wonderful landscape demo during the reception.

Our art work is very similar in colors and style but each artists’ work is very unique. Right now, the gallery is singing with color and the visitors have enjoyed it
