The 18th Annual
Water Conservation Poster Show
Every year, the San Diego Watercolor Society joins with the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department Water Conservation Program in acknowledging the children (K-6) who use art to communicate the importance of water conservation every day.

The artwork of the winners of the 2018 Kid’s Poster Contest, “How Am I a Water Conservation Hero,” was on display in the SDWS gallery.

An award ceremony was  held June 1 during the First Friday Reception for the June member’s show, “Bluesy Mash-Up.” Watch for it next year if you missed it this month!

Congrats to Dan Goldman and Shuang Li for their masterpieces at the Natural History Museum California Arts show.

FYI: I ran across this on the internet and thought it would benefit our members who are serious artists looking to gain recognition in the land of art. Try this site and read what Jason Horejs, (owns Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona)  has to say about the reasons why artists do not do well showing their work to galleries.

Miracles do happen to artists!

For many years, I was a snowbird painting with the Weds. painters group. We painted with Jay Andrews all of those times and at one point, I emptied his car and took pictures of all the work he had stashed in the way back of his station wagon. He always was ready to help us and we loved his compositions so much that I told him I would make a CD for him to record his work.
 
He never showed his work, and several of us (Chuck, Sue, Codie and I) tried to have a show of his paintings at a senior center but he refused. So I made a book of his work, which is in the SDWS library (Jay Andrews, the masterful painter). In 2016, SDWS had a show for him finally. I went to Jay’s house and he choose which ones he wanted.
He wound up in the hospital and did not come to his show. So, I recorded testimonials from it and shared them on my computer with Jay later. At that point, I also realized if we sold his paintings, no one knew where or what he had other than my photos. So I volunteered to take all of his work and get them all organized so they didn’t have to be touched just to find one. I took the stacks of his work and Sue Gold came up to Laguna and we spent a weekend sorting through and categorizing 435+ paintings. It was a blessing because he lost his house and is in a nursing home now.  So it was good I had gotten the work out of there.
As he now resides in a nursing home, I have been trying to get his work shown and his name out there. I went to a few museums and got helpful ideas from several. One sent me to the Hilbert Museum at Chapman University and I brought in some work and left the book I wrote there for them to look at.  That got me an appointment with Mr. Hilbert himself and the Director and he decided to do a show for three months of Jay’s work in the Fall.
What an honor that we got to know him before he was famous!! You can see an old blog of Jay’s marvelous work. He helped so many of us on Weds. because he really was a master painter!
