Mark has worked as photographer for such outfits as CBS News, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Deep Ellum Foundation, and the Lyndie Wilkes Advertising Agency (just to name a few), his photography as been shown in art galleries all over North Texas, and he is currently producing his first feature-length documentary film.

2017 SWS 54th Membership
Exhibition Awards Catalog

Juror was Keiko Tenabe

Congratulations to the following SWS artists who achieved Signature status with their acceptance into the 54th SWS Membership Exhibition: Anne Beletic, Dave Carlson, Kathy Elliott, Suzanne Galloway, Karen Harrington, Mollie Jones, Carol Peterson, and Val Wright

Major awards – more can be found listed in the catalog:

 


Our 54th Annual Membership Exhibition awards reception was held on Sunday, September 24. Guests seemed to enjoy the sweet & savory hors d’oeuvres, drinks & taking in all the beautiful art to the jazz tunes of Paul Utay’s band. We were able to change the layout and accommodate seating for 135. We had 185 in attendance. Some from as far away as Minnesota!
Many vendor gifts were awarded, several past members were honored with Memorial awards and
SWS awarded 1st, 2nd, 3rd place, as well as, a new award named “The President’s Award” which
was funded by past SWS Presidents to the tune if $500. We also awarded $1,000 to Alicia Farris
for the Edgar Whitney Transparent Watercolor Award and a $1,500 prize to our Naomi Brotherton,
Best of Show to Ingrid Albrecht for her intriguing And Off To The Park We Go watercolor piece! In
total we awarded over $12,000! But, the icing on the cake was likely that our dear Naomi Brotherton won 1st place…she is quite the effervescent artist at 97!
The show was hung for the month of September at the lovely Eisemann Center in Richardson,
Texas.
Many patrons of the arts were able to enjoy our art as they took in other shows there. A number of reception guests commented how this was likely our strongest show ever. Congratulations are in order, again, to everyone in the Exhibition. We hope even more of our members will take the opportunity to enter next year!

Keiko was born in Kyoto, Japan and currently lives in San Diego, California, U.S.A.  Primarily self-taught, she embarked on a professional art career as a watercolor painter in 2005 after working in international relations and marketing.  Since then, her work has earned many awards and recognitions on national and international level.  Her work appears in private and corporate collections in many countries.  Her work was also featured in numerous art publications including L’Art de l’Aquarelle (France & UK), Practique des Arts (France), Watercolor Artist (US) and Artists & Illustrators (UK).  She is also a sought-after workshop instructor, teaching watercolor courses both in the U.S. and abroad.  She is currently a member of National Watercolor Society (signature), American Watercolor Society,4North American Watercolor Artists and American Impressionist Society. Her website: https://ktanabefineart.com/

SWS has a long and rich history. The first Society organizational meetings for SWS were held in 1963. The first official meeting was held in January 1964 at N.R. Crozier Tech high school in downtown Dallas. The Society was granted a charter by the State of Texas in May of 1964.

It all started with the influence of Edgar Whitney and Naomi Brotherton. Naomi, charter SWS member, studied with Ed Whitney on several of his New England station wagon tours. Naomi convinced Ed Whitney to stop in Dallas on his way to the west coast on tour. While in Dallas he presented his book, “Watercolor, the How’s and Whys.”

The first conversation about forming the Society took place at a one of these Ed Whitney classes. It was the Whitney class that formed the invitation for an organization meeting in December of 1963. Over 50 people attended the first organizational meeting.

54 years later SWS has grown to over 400 members to be one of the largest and notable watercolor societies in the nation. Each year SWS honors Edgar Whitney with the SWS Membership Show / Edgar A. Whitney Award for Transparent Watercolor and Naomi Brotherton with the “Naomi Brotherton Award, Best of Show” for the top winner, instituted last year. Naomi at 96 still is active in SWS and teaches classes in her Dallas studio.

Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale entry deadline Sept. 15

FORT WORTH COMMUNITY ARTS CENTER IS PROUD TO PRESENT: Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale

EXHIBITION DATES: October 6 – October 25, 2017 RECEPTION: Friday, October 6, 2017 6pm-9pm

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION – September 15, 2017

https://fortworthcommunityartscenter.submittable.com/submit/91730/art-in-the-metroplex-grand-finale

Art in the Metroplex was first held in 1983. At its root, the exhibit was the brainchild of two people who wanted to work together. Beth Lea Clardy was an established Fort Worth artist, a 1940 graduate of the TCU art program and one of a quartet of concerned citizens who in 1978 founded the non-profit Committee for an Artists’ Center. Ronald Watson was an artist and educator on the faculty of the TCU Department of Art and Art History. He assumed the chairmanship of the TCU art department in 1982 with a goal of “seeking greater collaboration between the university and Fort Worth artists and organizations. Through its proud 33 year history, Art in the Metroplex has exhibited the work of thousands of local artists but much like all great things, it too must come to an end. Ann Ekstrom, daughter of Clardy and renowned artist has decided to alter the show’s format as we move into the 21st century making this Art in the Metroplex the finale.

CALL TO ARTISTS: Open call to all artists in the DFW Metroplex and surrounding areas – Tarrant, Dallas, Collin, Cooke, Denton, Ellis, Grayson, Hill, Hood, Hunt, Jack, Johnson, Kaufmann, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell and Wise. Open to artists over the age of 18, all disciplines with no theme. All medias including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, prints, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, video, installation, photography, and digital art. Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale will occur in our premier, 3000 square foot, Front Gallery at The Arts Center. All artwork must be original and must not infringe upon any copyright or the rights of any person.

PRIZES:

·          Grand Prize Winner: Solo Show in our Main Gallery at Art7, a storefront gallery located on Crockett St. in Fort Worth’s bustling 7th Street area.

·          Runners Up: A group exhibition occurring simultaneously as the solo show in the Back section of the Art7 Gallery.

Thematic Challenge: All You Need is Love & Art
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of “The Summer of Love” and Irving Arts Center’s “Summer of ’17,” participating artists are invited to create artwork which explores the theme of “All You Need is Love & Art.” Characterized by the spirit of revolution and social change, the 1960s were a turbulent and exciting time.  Through the works of those artists who choose to find inspiration in this theme, we hope to capture a bit of the culture, music and art of this most groovy decade.   Special prizes will be awarded to member artists who choose to compete in this category (note – this is completely optional).
