Audio-Visual Technology for IWS Workshops

By Workshops

If you have attended an IWS workshop any time during the past few years, you know we use a video camera, linked to either a projector or a TV set, to make the instructor’s actions more visible to the class. We have used a small SONY camcorder and are now using a GoPro 11 video camera to observe the lessons.

Right now, I am the only person acquainted with the camera and able to set it up for workshop use. I would like to meet with several other IWS members who would be interested in learning how to operate the camera and to set it up in the workshop area. By sharing this information, we can make sure that there is always someone available to help with any given activity.

If you take frequent workshops, this would be a perfect way to become more involved in assisting with IWS activities. Please let me know if you are interested in learning more about the GoPro and how we utilize it to enhance the workshops. I would like to set up one or two meetings between now and the end of May to pass on what I have learned and explore how we can better use this flexible technology.

Please send me an email to dchayzlett@gmail.com expressing your interest and I will contact you with further details.

Thank you.

IMPORTANT! Silver Sponsorship–PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

By Annual Juried Exhibition

Greetings, all Participants in the 2024 Annual Juried Membership Exhibition:

If you submitted your artwork to our Annual Show being exhibited at the Riverside Hotel, and you wish to sell your painting, this re-announcement pertains to you.

Idaho Power has asked to participate in our Silver Sponsor program.  They have offered $800 (commission-free) for the option to choose one piece of artwork in our exhibit.  This is a possible sale for your exhibited artwork.

But you must tell me if you wish to participate.  This only means your piece MAY be chosen for this honor.

If you have established an asking price for your painting, it may be to your advantage to participate.

Please shoot me an email directly to scottmuscolo@gmail.com if you would like to enter the program, or text me at 805-795-0252.

I can only offer those paintings to Idaho Power if you specifically asked to be part of this program.  I don’t want to risk offering a painting which is not for sale.

Here is the list of participants to date.  If you see your name here and you DON’T want to be part of this program, please contact me immediately.

Annual Juried Exhibition Participants and Idaho Power Sponsorship

By Annual Juried Exhibition, Events, Exhibits

Greetings Annual Show exhibitors:

We are pleased to announce that Idaho Power is again interested in sponsoring the purchase of a painting for their collection.  I have negotiated a (tentative) offer of $800 for the purchase of your painting by Idaho Power, should you choose to participate.

In 2019, this sponsorship was $600.

To understand this properly, your painting priced at $1100 would, after commission to IWS and the Water’s Edge Gallery would net $715.  This is after considering your painting may not sell at all.

A guaranteed price of $800 may be of more value to you than a hopeful asking price of $1500.

We do not deduct an IWS commission from this sale, and since it’s not driven by the venue, the Water’s Edge Gallery is excluded from commission in this sale.  You would receive the entire $800.

The sooner we hear from you on your willingness to participate, the sooner we can ink this proposal with Idaho Power.  Please get back directly to Scott Muscolo 805-795-0252 or at scottmuscolo@gmail.com to confirm your participation.

Thank you!

2024 Annual Show Exhibitors – Where and When to Deliver Paintings

By Annual IWS Location, Annual Juried Exhibition, Annual Show Location, Events, Exhibits

Hello 2024 Annual Show Exhibitors:

As a reminder, Friday, April 26 is the date for delivering your painting(s) to the Riverside Hotel, 2900 W Chinden Blvd, Boise, 83714.  For your convenience, the easiest place for you to bring it to the hotel is the “Sapphire Room” entrance at the southwest corner of the hotel.

As you enter there, the Emerald and Garnet rooms are to the left, where we’ll be accepting the paintings.

Please drop off your painting between 9:00-11:00 AM.  Sandra Davis from the hotel and I will be there to accept your paintings.  Please have already delivered your completed Water’s Edge Gallery agreement (attached again for your convenience) to me via snail or email.

So far, in addition to the 65 paintings accepted into the exhibit, we have 19 non-juried paintings hanging.  This will be a great exhibit!

Thank you,

Scott Muscolo, 2024 IWS Annual Juried Exhibition Chair

Water’s Edge Gallery Contract 2024 Modified for IWS Annual Show

Attention all 2024 Annual Juried Exhibition Participants Whether or Not You Were Juried In/Accepted Into the Show

By Annual Juried Exhibition, Annual Show Location, Exhibits

Attention all participants in the 2024 Annual Juried Exhibition WHETHER OR NOT YOU WERE JURIED IN/ACCEPTED INTO THE SHOW:

  1. REQUEST

If you would like to send your non-exhibit painting(s) that you entered (up to two per artist) please contact me via email directly (again) with your name, painting title, dimensions, and asking price EVEN IF YOU HAVE SENT ME AN EMAIL SAYING YOU’D LIKE TO DO THIS.  REPEAT:  EVEN IF YOU HAVE SENT ME AN EMAIL SAYING YOU’D LIKE TO DO THIS.

I have done more work regarding how such paintings would be handled by the hotel, and on the need to keep them separate from the accepted exhibit paintings.

Due to my essentially fallible nature, I have not saved all your prior individual emails saying “hey, I’d like to send in my paintings anyway”.

Sending them to me again will ensure that I can inform the Riverside Hotel properly regarding hanging tags for the non-accepted paintings and how their sales are to be handled.

The Details for Hanging Tags spreadsheet attached is for your information only, but if you find your name on the list and there is an error (or you wish to make a price change) please also send me an email.  Some of them have curious spellings (I tried very hard to exactly copy your information from the detail list in your ArtCall submission) or no entry for either price or dimensions.

     2. REQUEST

For all of you who wish to sell your painting(s), please download and complete the attached contract for the Water’s Edge Gallery/Riverside Hotel for information on your painting and your agreement to their terms.  Note that the Riverside Hotel WILL INSURE YOUR PAINTING FOR THE ASKING PRICE ($3500 and under) as long as you complete and sign the agreement.  Please take care of this immediately.  If you can scan and email, great.  If not, fill it out and mail to me right away.  I’d like to get all this to Sandra Davis at the Riverside Hotel by Monday of next week (4/22).   The contract also spells out the Riverside Hotel commission (20%).

  1. NOTIFICATION

The De-Installation date for exhibit paintings has been pushed out to Monday, July 1 so that the Riverside Hotel won’t have empty walls during the July 4th holiday weekend.  This also gives you an extra weekend in which to sell your painting.

 My Address:

Scott Muscolo
3640 N Pankratz Way
Meridian, ID  83646

Shipping address for the Riverside Hotel:

Sandra Davis c/o The Riverside Hotel
2900 W. Chinden Blvd.
Boise, ID  83714

 If you have an individual question on any of this, including the shipping/receiving dates, please feel free to contact me directly on the phone or via email.
