Kathleen Conover, was awarded the 2011 American Watercolor Society Silver Medal of Honor on April 29 at the Salmagundi Club in New York City for her water-media painting "Change is in the Air" featured above.
This painting was also the entry that gained her Signature Status in AWS earlier this year. Says Conover, "It is the second biggest honor in the watercolor world," (Gold is first).
Part of being a contemporary artist is continued involvement in fostering, educating and volunteering for the arts. Once again, Kathleen has committed her time and talents to advance the arts for all by taking the position of president of International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA) for three years. "This is an organization I have been involved in since it's infancy and I believe in it's potential to reach so many more artists. ISEA encompasses what so many of us truly believe art is about: exploration, learning, sharing and creative personal expression."
