For the 36th year, The San Diego Watercolor Society (SDWS) will host its renowned International Exhibition from Oct. 1 - Oct. 31. The exhibit is highly competitive and showcases the very best of watermedia art from local, national and international artists. Award winning artist, author, instructor and signature member of the American and National Watercolor Societies, Mark Mehaffey, juried for this year’s show. Mehaffey selected 95 paintings from the nearly 800 submissions. “The show is of such quality that I could give an award to any of the paintings!”
Gari Stephenson has won “Best of Show” for The Guardian. Stephenson, from Roanoke, VA, has studied painting for the past thirty years using acrylic paint for most work. She is a signature member of American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Southern Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain Watercolor Society, and Virginia Watercolor Society. Her subjects range from figures to abstracts to scenes usually from Maine.
