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!
