Making a Mark in Missouri

The Saint Louis Watercolor Society’s 20th Annual Juried Exhibit will be on display through April 27, 2019, at Missouri Artists on Main in St. Charles, Missouri.

Juror Fealing Lin selected more than 80 watercolor paintings from artists in the metro St. Louis area for the exhibit.


“I usually respond to works with consistent quality and well-done surface first,” says Fealing Lin. “The surprise of emotional expression and a unique choice of good colors will also get my attention. Then dynamic design and originality of expression lead me to the awards. Adventurous use of the media could also be a fun surprise to me. And hopefully my own taste will come in least of all.”
