The 54th Annual Member Exhibit is fast approaching with a deadline for entries on September 27 at 3pm. We are looking forward to filling our Gallery walls with artwork from our talented members and having artist, Ken Call, be our juror and judge for the show.
Born and raised in Rochelle, Illinois, Ken Call went on to graduate from the American Academy of Art in 1980 with an associate degree in Illustration and Watercolor. He has worked as a national freelance artist for many years and spent 1993 and 1994 studying and painting in Paris, France. To date he has created over 500 illustrations for books, magazines, art publishers, advertising agencies and corporations. In the last few years, he made the transition to fine art and portraiture. “Many of my originals are hanging in galleries and homes across the country. Several awards have led to Signature status in the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Missouri Watercolor Society, Montana Watercolor Society along with being a Master Signature member with the Transparent Watercolor Society of America and Illinois Watercolor Society.” - Ken Call Ken Call will conduct a workshop at WAS-H October 2-4.
You can also participate in the AME by volunteering. Runners will be needed on the day of judging to move paintings for judging and installation and to assist with the reception. It’s a great way to get to know your fellow artists. Click HERE to sign-up to volunteer.
