Romeo by Frankfort artist Sandy Newell accumulated enough points to qualify her for Signature Membership in the Illinois Watercolor Society in 2014.

FRANKFORT – Artist Sandy Newell was recently awarded the prestigious Illinois Watercolor Society Signature Membership.

This designation allows Newell to add IWS to her name when she signs her work.

According to the Illinois Watercolor Society, these three letters recognize an artist’s status not only in the watercolor community, but also in the world of fine art everywhere.

Newell was honored at a reception in Dixon on May 10 at the Illinois Watercolor Society’s National Exhibition.

Newell will be at the Frankfort Fine Art Fair on June 21 at Breidert Green in downtown Frankfort.

She will show a collection of her paintings, prints and note cards in a booth along with her daughter Katie, who will show her jewelry and clothing.
