Madeleine Vallier was an esteemed member of the National Society of Arts and Letters. As a founder of the Chelsea Painters, she was passionate about her own art and was equally invested in the development of other artists who shared her passion.
She was actively involved in her community and served as a resource, a mentor, and a friend. The Society is proud to honor Madeleine with this competition to support and encourage Madeleine’s love for watermedia. Chelsea Painters’ Janice Stevens Botsford and Corinne Vivian are also active members of the Mid-Michigan NSAL.
The Watermedia Competition is presented by the National Society of Arts and Letters: Mid-Michigan Chapter.
