Carol Wilder received the Siskiyou Artists Association Artist of the Year award Oct. 17 in Lake Shastina during the final meeting of the year.

She was recognized for her watercolor landscape titled “Quiet Reflections,” which was one of the year’s monthly artworks winners.

The award was presented by Bill Dent, SAA’s 2011 president.

A new slate of officers was elected during the meeting, and Julie Grossman demonstrated painting with a palette knife.

The next SAA meeting, a critique, is scheduled for Feb. 20, 2011. For more information go to
