NWWS Puts Their Best Work on Display

Soon Young Warren reminded entrants in the Northwest Watercolor Society’s (NWWS) 2019 annual membership exhibition that putting out their work to be judged “takes guts, and you did it. That’s what you should be proud of.”

First Place: “Still Point,” by Kate Aubrey

From those paintings that have been put forward, she awarded First place to Kate Aubrey for her watercolor painting, Still Point. “I saw her gaze and the eyes grabbed me so intensely, an emotion I could not walk away from,” said Warren. Aubrey, who watched the presentation from her home in Maryville, Tennessee, on Facebook live, commented, “You only dream of highly respected artists saying something like that about one of your paintings. Now it has happened and I’m almost in tears.”

Taking second place of $750 for Flamenco Whorl was Sandy Haight of Bainbridge Island, Washington. Third place of $500 went to Denise McFadden from Vancouver, Washington for Flap.
