In memory of Sharon Neuhaus

Posted by on Feb 16, 2017 in News | No Comments

Region V lost one of its long time members on Feburary 4, 2017, after a long battle with cancer. Sharon Neuhaus was one of the first members to join the reinstated TnWS Region V. Sharon was a native of Texas and an artist known nationwide for her whimsical roosters, which were licensed and made into figurines and adorned rugs, mugs, plates, dishtowels, and prints. A friend said upon learning of her passing, “The world will be a lot less colorful now.” She started an award for the Newell Hendershot Watermedia show, open to all TnWS members, that is appropriately named “Different Strokes,” which will be continued in her memory this year at the 2017 show in August.
