Annual Juried Exhibition


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 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 to confirm your participation.

Thank you!

Scott Muscolo, 2024 IWS Annual Juried Exhibition Chair

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:


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%).


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:

Meridian, ID  83646

Shipping address for the Riverside Hotel:

Sandra Davis c/o The Riverside Hotel
2900 W. Chinden Blvd.

 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.

IWS Annual Juried Exhibition Participants – Important Notification

By Annual Juried Exhibition, Annual Show Location

Greetings Annual Exhibit Participants:

We (Carol and I) realize that there have been a couple of mis-steps in properly configuring the mailing status for jury notification.  Carol has corrected the email process and we expect the proper notifications to be sent out sometime today (there are quite a few notifications) or at the latest this evening for receipt in your inboxes no later than tomorrow.  The site indicates that the emails have been sent but we know that is not accurate.

Please don’t call or email today regarding your notification as we can’t work any faster than ArtCall can send out the emails.  For some reason even the Rotunda Show information had been transferred over to the 2024 Annual Exhibition ArtCall site, and this is something that we had no control over—indicating that some of the issues are within ArtCall itself.

In the meantime, the proper address for sending your paintings will be the Riverside Hotel in Boise, and I’m going to confirm specifics with Sandra Davis there as to any important details regarding shipping.

We wanted this to go perfectly smoothly as much as you did, so thank you in advance for your indulgence while these issues get resolved.

Greetings Annual Show Participants!

By Annual Juried Exhibition, ArtCall, Events, Exhibits

Greetings Annual Show Participants!

ArtCall for the 2024 IWS Annual Juried Exhibition is completed, and no new entries may be submitted or existing entries modified.

Congratulations to all for your hard work and dedication to our society for participating in this show.  We have a record 82 participants and 153 submissions!  This is a terrific pool of wonderful artwork to choose from, and I’m sure we have given our judge a hard nut to crack.  Good luck to all of you!

As a reminder, once the jurying is complete, whether or not your painting was accepted into the exhibition, you are welcome to send your work to the Riverside Hotel (we’ll put out more specific information shortly) with pricing if you wish to try to sell it.  This is the first time we’ve been able to do this!  Out of the largesse of our sponsor for the show we are able to hang as many paintings as we like.  I encourage you to take advantage of this if your goal is to sell your work.  The works will hang for two months (May and June), until the travel show is packed up and shipped to Twin Falls for the first leg of the tour.  I will arrange for your paintings to be returned as I have for other shows, and will contact you with shipping charges.

Again, thank you for your record participation!

Scott Muscolo, 2024 IWS Annual Juried Exhibition Chair
