Art Show at the Riverside Hotel Submission Guidelines

By | All IWS Info, Events, Exhibits, Uncategorized

The owners of The Riverside Hotel and Boise artist Julie Clemons, a non-IWS member, will jury 35 to 40 IWS water-media paintings to hang in the Riverside Hotel hallways April 1-June 30, 2020. This show will highlight IWS artwork during WFWS-45 when and where the convention and guests will be staying. There are NO restrictions on size (the larger the better), surface, date of completion, mat colors or NFS. Submit your favorite water-media works no matter how old…but all must be ready to hang with wire (no sawtooth hangers). Do NOT submit the same painting(s) in both this show and the 2020 WFWS show, as WFWS results will not yet be known.
