40th Anniversary Annual Members Meeting

October 15, 2023

Meeting Video Replay

We celebrated 40 years together! We had a special treat featuring an informative demonstration Cradling and Other Tips for Exhibiting by FSWS Signature member Suzanne Natzke, FWS, GWS, FSWS. Suzanne reviewed procedures for preparing watermedia artwork for juried shows. Special emphasis was given to mounting and sealing watercolor paintings on cradles and other non-traditional surfaces. Key topics include demystifying the prospectus, prepping your entry, and getting your painting ready to exhibit. Watch her demo on our YouTube channel.  The link is here for the Video replay.

UPDATE! Suncoast recently revised our Prospectus to accept artwork that is mounted to or painted on a cradled board and sealed or varnished as an option to matted and framed artwork under plexiglass.
