Quiller awarded Silver Medal of Honor


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.
