It is an exciting and BUSY time for IWS.  We have a couple of announcements that we just couldn’t wait for the June Newsletter to share with you.

ANNUAL JURIED SHOW – At the Meridian City Hall on the 3rd floor Initial Point Gallery.  Opens on May 26 and runs through June 29th.  City Hall is open Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm.  Make sure you invite your friends and family.  This is one you won’t want to miss.  Awards Ceremony, Friday, June 2nd, 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm.


As awareness of IWS grows in our communities, so do the opportunities.  Let me share two of those opportunities.

  1. IWS has been offered an opportunity to show and sell our work during the month of September at Finer Frames in Eagle, Idaho.  This will be a small format show.  It will be juried, with opportunities for IWS members across the State to enter.  Cathy Anderson and Roy Gover will be leading this show.  Watch for more information and a prospectus to be published shortly.
  2. I am excited to announce that our ANNUAL MEETING will be held this year at the beautiful Tamarack Resort in Donnelly, Idaho. Save the weekend of September 15-16.  This event includes art talks, a workshop, and a plein-air outing, and will provide an opportunity for those attending to show and sell their work.  Watch for the complete announcement in the coming days.

Best regards,

Your IWS Executive Ctte.
