Stephanie Van de Wetering, an artist, and resident of North Park, San Diego, California, has won the Third Place award in the December 2023 San Diego Watercolor Society (SDWS) Member’s exhibition “Luminous Spaces”, an in-gallery show of the SDWS at 2825 Dewey Road in Liberty Station, San Diego, CA. Van de Wetering’s painting titled “Selfie with Poseidon” was selected by prominent local artist and juror Chuck McPherson for this honor, out of 223 paintings. McPherson commented, “I am very taken with the series that this artist is creating. It attracts my attention every time she puts something in a show. I love her interiors but are quickly being complemented by her exteriors. The fact that she captures real life in such a short moment from a subject matter that is instantaneous is simply remarkable. I admire how quickly she’s painting: almost a painting a day!”

Ms. Van de Wetering began painting when she moved to San Diego six years ago and started taking workshops through the San Diego Watercolor Society. She likes to make paintings that express the feeling of joy. She currently serves as the Workshops Director for the San Diego Watercolor Society.

The SDWS Gallery Exhibit will run through Sunday, December 31, 2023, at the SDWS gallery at 2528 Dewey Road in Liberty Station, and is free to the public Paintings can be viewed and purchased directly from the gallery, and are also available to view and purchase on the SDWS website at https://www.sdws.org/galleryart.php?cat=7038
