Entry Procedures/Deadline for Entry Form:  One painting per artist may be entered.  Entry fee is $10. Send completed entry form (below) with check for entry fee to Sarah Johnson, 2216 Alcoa Road, Benton AR 72015, by September 2, 2019.  All checks are to be made out to Mid-Southern Watercolorists.

Certain required characteristics of the paintings to be hung are as follows:


• Size will be limited to a maximum of forty inches 40” outside length on any side (e.g., outside frame length). Frame must be simple but sturdy (no wider than two inches) and ready for hanging (with wire hanger). All paintings on paper must be framed under Plexiglas. All paintings on any stretched device must be gallery wrapped and all the edges painted.

• Types of allowable media and grounds may include any water-soluble medium or combination of water-soluble media on any ground that accepts water-soluble media (e.g., paper, Yupo, canvas or prepared board).

• Entries must not have been shown previously in any juried MSW exhibition.

• Entries must be well-presented by the artist for gallery showing, including simple framing and white or off-white mats only. If either Argenta Branch of Laman Library or MSW deems a picture’s framing or other presentation method is below the necessary standard, MSW will attempt to work with the artist toward the needed improvement. MSW reserves the right to exclude any painting for any reason.
