Any SLWS member in good standing may exhibit work at C.J. Muggs in Webster Groves.  Paintings must 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.)

The Exhibit Chairman is responsible for contacting the restaurant management prior to the switch out times. The CJ Muggs contact persons are Joe or Sam Cral, phone 963 1976. The chairman also provides sign in sheets, entry forms, tolls necessary for hanging the exhibit.
