NWS Signature Status
Kathleen Mooney has been awarded the honor of signature status in the National Watercolor Society, NWS. Mooney’s artist signature will now include NWS. Her painting “Coordinates” has been accepted in the NWS 91st Anniversary Annual Exhibition 2011. On acceptance of “Coordinates” NWS invited Mooney to submit three additional paintings of for review by the Jury of Selection. Her paintings were judged to meet the standards of quality and consistency required by the Society and Mooney was invited to become a Signature Member.

“I am thrilled with achieving signature status in National Watercolor Society. To have “Coordinates” selected for the NWS national touring award from over 1,000 exhibition entries is a huge honor. The NWS Annual Exhibition is an important international event with the strongest water media artists from all over the world applying every year.”
