Annual Juried Exhibition on Nextdoor

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

Hello Annual Show participants:

We posted an announcement on Next Door regarding the show.  Here is the text of the announcement:

Attention Art Lovers:

Paintings from The Idaho Watercolor Society will be at the Riverside Hotel from May 2 through July 1, celebrating our 44th Annual Juried Membership Exhibition!  Nationally recognized artist Chris Stubbs will be the juror.  88 paintings from all over our great state will be on display, showcasing the talents of our membership.  Celebrated local artists such as Joyce Green, Anne Watson Sorensen, Hugh Mossman, and many others will have their work on view for purchase or pure appreciation!  You may find the original work of art that is the new centerpiece for your home while you enjoy the atmosphere and great service of the Riverside Hotel, 2900 W Chinden Blvd in Boise.

We hope to see you there!

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

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.

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.
