CJ Muggs Exhibits for 2011

C.J.Muggs Exhibit Schedule & Theme 2011 - 2012 
Saint Louis Watercolor Society

Any SLWS member in good standing may exhibit work at C.J. Muggs in Webster Groves.  Paintings should be matted with an off white or white mat, framed under plexi - glass, and wired for hanging. Please note the SLWS Exhibit Rules and regulations in the SLWS Membership Directory.
Artists are responsible for the pick up and delivery of their paintings.  Dates are planned so that the receiving and pick - up times (third Tueday night 9 P.M. - 10 P.M. and third Wednesday morning 9 A.M. - 10 A.M.) are convenient for the restaurant's business and SLWS meeting times.
Artists are able to sell their work.  The restaurant does not take a commission and does not serve as a business agent for the exhibiting artists.  Each artist's relationship with the restaurant and the Saint Louis Watercolor Society is a relationship of trust. Paintings must remain hanging for the duration of the scheduled exhibit. (If a painting is sold before the exhibit is switched out, the artist is responsible for replacing it with a comparable painting or waiting until the exhibit concludes before delivering it to the buyer.)

Beth Gygax Show Opening in Webster Groves

Hello SLWS friends,

I made friends with the woman who owns a new cafe in Webster Groves.  She's agreed to have my paintings up in her cafe and sponsor an Art Opening.

I am so excited, my first Opening... I would love you to come.  It might be the perfect venue for your paintings when my show is done!

Thanks for your support

Hope to see you soon,

Class with Judy Seyfert at the Missouri Botanical Garden

Judy Seyfert will be having a class at the Missouri Botanical Garden in January.  It is a class designed for the watercolor artists who need a mid winter creative boost.  The class meets four Fridays beginning January 14th from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m.  The class title and description is as follows:

 Watercolor Rescue. Lost interest and feeling uninspired about your art in the cold of winter?  Are you in an "artistic slump"? Let the Garden awaken and inspire you once again. This is a unique class for watercolor artists to engage in a little nature-inspired "art therapy" to jump start your creativity.  It's also a time to bring in your problem paintings, and together, we will try to pass the hurdles to fix them.  This class is for artists of all levels who have some watercolor experience. Designed for adults only.  If classes are canceled due to inclement weather February 11 and 18 will be used as the backup class dates.

Go to the Missouri Botanical Garden website (, click education and then go to the adult education link.  Information about the class is there.  You can register online or call them at 341-577-5100.

Maplewood Arts Festival

Happy New Year!

I am the art instructor for Maplewood Richmond Heights Elementary School.
We are hosting our first arts festival April 29, 2011, 5-8:30 pm. Due to decreasing funds in education, it is very important that I provide my students with as many experiences in the arts as I can. I have already booked over 30 local artists and many art organizations. My vision for this festival is to provide families and communities members the opportunity to take part in activities, view artists work (and buy), experience music and performances and maybe find a camp or class for children to attend. All booths are free and any profit you obtain goes directly to you.  If anyone is interested or would like more information, please email  me or give me a call. I hope to here from you soon.

Thank you,
Sally Saldana
