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,

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!

2024 Rotunda Award Winners!

By Events, Rotunda Show

Dear IWS Members,

 

We are thrilled to announce the winners of the 40th Annual Capitol Rotunda Art Show “Visitor’s Choice Award”! This year, we received an impressive 787 votes, marking a new record since the award’s inception in 2022. Without further delay, here are this year’s winners:

1st Place: Michael Grainger “Sugar High” ($200 Award)

2nd Place: Shelly Johnson “Happiness on a Tire Swing” ($100 Award)
3rd Place: Renee Galligher “Pink and Sweets”

Tied for 4th Place: Don Dyer “Bear Lake Country”, Sharon Herther “Autumn Lake Creek”.

Congratulations to these wonderful artists! Their work truly resonated with the public, and we commend them for their outstanding achievement.

We also extend our heartfelt appreciation to ALL of the artists who participated in this year’s IWS Rotunda Show. Your contributions have been invaluable in showcasing the diverse and exceptional talents within our watercolor community. Thank you for sharing your remarkable artwork and representing the Idaho Watercolor Society with such professionalism and excellence.

Lastly, but most importantly, we need to send a huge “thank you” to all of the many volunteers who helped the IWS organize this show. This exhibition would literally not be possible without the help of countless members who moved panels, hosted the show, provided treats for our reception, and so much more! Your dedication and hard work are deeply appreciated, and we recognize the vital role you play in making this show a reality.

This year’s Capitol Rotunda Art Show has been an incredible success. As we reflect on the achievements of this year, we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to see what next year’s show will bring. With your continued passion, creativity, and volunteerism, we have no doubt that it will be even more spectacular!

Cheers,

Beth Trott and Bonnie Liles
IWS Capitol Rotunda Show Coordinators
