Marybeth Heikes recently received an Honorable Mention Award at the Iowa Watercolor Society’s annual meeting and awards luncheon in Ankeny.
Her painting, “Palette Talk #1,” won the Jack Richeson Merchandise Award. The merchandise consisted of the finest artists’ quality pigments and sable brushes from the company.
Another watercolor painting by Heikes, “Front BNSF,” was selected by juror Sue Archer to be part of the Montana National Watermedia Exhibition at the Bigfork Museum of Art and History. She has received the $250 Merchandise Canson Fine Art Paper Award in this show which is presently open and continues through Nov. 9. This painting was also exhibited earlier this year in the Houston International Watercolor Show.
