The Florence Museum is proud to be the inaugural host of this year’s annual juried competition organized by The South Carolina Watermedia Society. The show consists of 60 works created by SCWS members.
This year the competition was juried by New York based artist Pat Dews. Dews’s experience as a professional artist and her long time membership to such organizations as the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society made her uniquely qualified to serve as this year’s judge.
Thirty of the sixty works which make up this show have been selected by Dews to become the Annual Traveling Exhibit, which will tour venues throughout the state until the close of the exhibit season. The Hartsville Museum in Hartsville, SC, will be the first stop for these traveling works from December 1 – 31, 2009.
The Florence Museum would like to thank SCWS President, Pollie Bristow, Director, Damita Jeter and Exhibit Chair, Lynda English, as well as the many volunteers whose time, dedication and effort made this year’s exhibit a great success.
