A note from Carrie to all who submitted pieces for the juried show:
"I was so very honored to jury the Spokane Watercolor's annual show! The selection was very difficult. All the paintings were worthy of hanging, a nod to the quality of artists who entered. From lush florals, sweeping landscapes, exciting abstracts, to paintings who seemed to tell a visual story, I fell in love with them all. Alas, the wall space is limited. For those who didn't make it this time, know that I still found your work exciting and creative. For those who did, congratulations and best of luck." -Carrie Stuart Parks
