AWARDS + HONORS

Many things happen during the course of year and it’s not always easy to keep up and post things as they happen.  I apologize to any of you whom I have not recognized in the past in regards to Awards and Honors Received over the course of your time in WCA.  I will try as I know Barb Carson does to put things out in a more timely manner in the future.

So just to play a little catch up:

Member Bonnie Wylo

Entered an Exhibition at the Guild Hall near Matruka Sherman’s Summer Home in May and this particular piece was accepted into a show.

Bonnie Wylo

Guild Hall is a very prestigious venue and of course
Bonnie hopes that Alec Balwin sees the it. I hope so too.

It’s called Sunset Bridge.  Bonnie captured the image while  flying over the FLA Keys.

Bonnie has also participated in their famous annual Clothesline Art Sale in August.  Awards are juried.  Bonnie says that getting a work in this venue is award enough as it is very prestigious.

Sue Beutler is like the Ever Ready Bunny and she is always entering exhibitions both within WCA and elsewhere. And although she is very good at sending me her information, I seem best at sending her invitations out via The Feminist Art Project – Michigan list serve and less good and posting her many awards she has received over the years on our blog.

It is with great honor that I list our dear Sue Beutler in this most recent award from an art organization in San Diego , CA.  I believe this is the second time Beutler has taken the honorable mention from this same group…Or maybe she came in Second Place on show?  I honestly can’t remember….so please forgive me  Sue.  You work so hard at your career and I hope the WCA members come by to visit your booth while they wander around Art Fair.

    Congratulations Bonnie, love the picture. We should be encouraging more of our members to list their accomplishments on this page of the blog–I will work on that.
