CREEDE— Stephen Quiller, painter who lives in Creede, has been selected for the
Silver Medal of Honor at the 151st American Watercolor Society’s International
Exhibition. He will be presented this honor at the AWS awards banquet at the
Salmagundi Club in New York April 27. His painting “Flickering Light Along the Ridge
Trail” was inspired from late afternoon cross-country skiing experiences in the
mountains above Creede.
Ann McCartney from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada will receive the gold medal and
Chung-Wei Chein from Taipei City, Taiwan will be given the bronze. This exhibition had
entries from 28 different countries. The show will be on display in April at the
Salmagundi Club in New York. Then 40 of the paintings from this exhibit, including
Quiller’s, will travel to six locations in the United States during the coming year. There
is $46,000 for 32 awards this year.
