This November, as a final culmination of the NWS 100 year anniversary celebrations, the National Watercolor Society and Hilbert Museum of California Art have teemed up to organize a must-enter juried exhibition (see a write up in The Art of Watercolour Magazine, issue #38).The paintings in this exhibition will be selected by NWS past presidents, Gerald Brommer and Ken Goldman, and will feature up to 80 artworks of NWS members displayed in close proximity to famous 20th century “California Scene Painters.” It was this group who originally formed the California Watercolor Society in 1920 with a goal of arranging high quality  exhibitions of watercolors to help further the appreciation and understanding of work done in this medium. This same society, now called the National Watercolor Society, still maintains the same high standards of excellence begun 100 years ago.

UWS member, Jana Parkin, will be teaching a workshop at a castle in France in June 2020. Marouatte Castle, in the Dordogne region, sits on 240 acres of woodlands and looks like a fairy tale castle! Artists actually get to stay at a private room in the castle. Each has a private bath as well. We will also take day trips to the surrounding villages, which are amazingly picturesque and begging to be painted. Fairly nearby are the famed Lascaux caves, and Grotte de Villars with Neolithic paintings dating from 19,000 BC.

Visit janaparkin.com to be placed on the email list for more information about the castle workshop. Or reach out to her directly: janaparkinart@gmail.com.
