National Watercolor Show ENDS OCT 30
Sunday October 30 from 1-5 pm is your last chance
to view The National Watercolor Society Traveling
Show at Southern Arts Society. The highlight of the
exhibit was meeting artist Carol Creel from
Louisiana. Carol was our special guest for the opening
weekend and she enjoyed
meeting and speaking with
people about her work.
Visitors from across the
region enjoyed seeing the
exhibit and gift shop and
they were very impressed
with our facility. This has
been a great experience for
Mayor Scott Neisler with Carol Creel

Thank You to our Sponsors

SASi would like to say a special Thank You to our
sponsors for the National Watercolor Society
Traveling Show. We could not have put on this
exhibit without your help. Our success is
dependent on our members and the community.
