Greetings Annual Show Participants!

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!

ArtCall for the 2024 Annual Juried Exhibition Opens Soon

By Annual Juried Exhibition, ArtCall

Greetings IWS Members!

ArtCall opens for the 2024 Annual Juried Exhibition on February 9, 2024. 

Click on the link and it will take you to the site.  (You will not be able to go further into the site until it opens Feb. 9.)  You might want to save the link for easy access.

ArtCall entries must be submitted by Wednesday, March 27, 9:00 PM MST, so you have a full 6 ½ weeks to enter your work.

Please review the prospectus online or download the email attachment and keep it handy for review.

Remember, you must be a current member of the IWS to participate in the exhibition.  If you are unsure of your status, please contact Lynn McConnell to be sure your dues are up-to-date.

This year we are exhibiting at the Riverside Hotel in Boise for the Treasure Valley portion of the show, and we have a full two months for our exhibit.

We are able to accept up to two paintings from each artist, and there is a new twist this year:

  • You can send your painting for display EVEN IF IT IS NOT PART OF THE JURIED EXHIBIT.  This is because we have space for up to 150 paintings in the lobby/first floor area of the hotel.  We are inviting you to send in your painting regardless of juried status.  This gives you the ability to show and sell your work even if it’s not part of the exhibit proper.

This is a brand-new opportunity for us, as we previously had no room for any but accepted paintings.  This is how it will look on the floor:

  • Paintings not accepted into the juried exhibition will hang with/near the accepted paintings, but with just your name, title, and asking price on the wall label.
  • Accepted juried exhibit paintings will have a blue dot added to the wall label, and identified as being accepted into the juried portion of the exhibition.
  • The paintings juried into the travel show will have a second dot on the label indicating its special status.

Keep in mind you are still responsible for shipping in each direction.  If your painting is not juried into the exhibition, you can still send it in for display and possible sale.  Woohoo!  If it is not sold, it will be returned to you at the close of the exhibition shortly after June 28, 2024.  None of the other venues have room for this many works.

We will provide you with more specific shipping information after the ArtCall closing date.

If your painting(s) aren’t completed, get busy!  We are looking forward to seeing your work in Boise at the Riverside.

Best of luck, and feel free to contact me directly with any questions,
