2022 Spring Exhibition Accepted Entries & Awards

Northern Arizona Watercolor Society (NAWS) is proud to present our 27th Annual Spring Exhibition. As was the case last year, we chose to hold a virtual show. We still had pretty good participation considering the circumstances surrounding us all. This year’s juror is Brenda Swenson, she has chosen 39 pieces from a large list of submissions, to be included in this year’s juried Spring show. From those accepted entries, awards were given out for outstanding work in several different categories. See below for the list of accepted artwork.

Again, this year we decided to show all submitted work in a separate gallery – click here to view. Although these pieces did not all make the juried show, they are great examples of the wonderful work being done by NAWS and its members. Any artist that enters an exhibition is a winner. You can see how tough it is to make the cut.

We hope you enjoy this year’s exhibition, and if you have an interest in purchasing any of the artwork from either list, please email Mike Trulson at mikeymd2@msn.com with your name, contact info, and the title of the artwork.  We will pass the info on to the artist and they will contact you directly.
