About the Show
The MNWS Fall Exhibition is a non-juried show open to all active members who have paid dues through May 31, 2021. Artists of all skill levels may submit one painting. The first 70 paid entries will be accepted. The $30 fee is non-refundable and helps support the Minnesota Water Color Society.
All entries must follow MNWS Exhibition Rules. Artists must accept an online Submission Rules Agreement to participate as part of the registration process. Artists are strongly encouraged to completely read and understand rules BEFORE deciding what image to submit. Matting and framing requirements do not apply for this virtual show.
Paintings may be offered for sale or shown as NFS – not for sale. Artists wishing to sell their paintings must provide contact information (website, email or phone number) which will be posted on the WBCA website during the show.
Artists are individually responsible for transacting the sale directly with the buyer and for arranging to ship the artwork to the buyer. WBCA asks for a 15% commission. It is the responsibility of the artist to send the commission to WBCA as a professional courtesy.
Registration opens July 16, 2020 and closes August 14, 2020.
New for 2020: you will have the option to include an Artist Statement about your work during the registration process. Maximum length of 200 words.

Cris Franchevich is a visual artist and architect originally from Brazil and living in Minneapolis since 2000 with her husband and their two daughters. An avid traveler, Cris sees the city with the eyes of an andarilho, a Portuguese word meaning the wanderer, the explorer discovering new territory.
Cris navigates between the realm of figurative and abstract work. What begins as watercolor sketches painted on-site, develops into mixed media paintings in studio. Her art is made similar to how her journeys are made; walking to step away from the comfort zone and seeking new experiences.
Cris teaches watercolor workshops locally and abroad.
