The CFWS 2020-21 season presented a number of challenges. How to remain relevant to our members, how to fulfill our mission, how to plan for the future.?  ZOOM made our meetings possible by providing the means for members to gather while remaining safe, ZOOM made it possible for demos to continue.. These online demos proved to be more informative and beneficial than the in-person demos had been in the past.

Your board has decided on a  plan for the remainder of the  2021-22 season.

Meetings: It was decided that we will continue with the format of using ZOOM in February and March with online demos by accomplished artists. Vice President Richelle Siska welcomes suggestions of demo artists from the members, email her  with suggestions..  With that, we will again be unclear on how we can proceed with in person gatherings during the remainder of the season.  See the event calendar for details.

Our Annual Juried Show will be scheduled for March 2022  and submissions have been presented to the juror.

Sue Archer Workshop in  March ’22 has been confirmed and will be in-person. Details and registration can be found by clicking the Workshop tab.

Plein Air sessions are still being scheduled monthly. These are a great opportunity to meet outdoors and share time with fellow members  Events will be posted on the events calendar as they are confirmed. Check back often to see what will be happening during the remainder of the 2021-22 season.
