PENNSYLVANIA Watercolor Sociaty.

Vicki Renn’s art was awarded second place in PWS’s first juried exhibit in 1980. In 2010, Vicki won another award. In the 30 years in between, Vicki was a loyal member, although she was busy teaching and didn’t always have time to paint, let alone enter shows. Now, Vicki is happily working on a series of realistic and yet decorative paintings of local cornfields.
