First Friday reception March 2, 7-9pm
The 26th annual Rockies West National watercolor exhibition showcases seventy-three paintings, which have been juried into this year’s show. Artists from nineteen different states will be represented. Artists from Colorado and the Grand Valley are also very well-represented in the show. Cash awards in excess of $3300 and several merchandise awards have drawn many great artists to apply.
Our Juror/Judge this year is Fealing Lin. She is judging our show for the second time as her workshops are very popular; the last time her workshop sold out. She is an award-winning watercolorist who lives in San Marino, California. She was born in Taiwan and began her journey into artistic expression as a protégé of renowned professor Ching-Jung Chen. She pursued her career in the United States with watercolorist and senior art history professor Verna Wells.
With a fluidity of colors, Lin combines impressionistic strokes and semi-abstract techniques to elicit life and movement in her portrait and landscape paintings. Lin is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Watercolor West and San Diego Watercolor Society. She teaches workshops throughout the United States and will conduct a workshop at The Art Center, combining landscape and portraiture, February 28 through March 2. Lin will give a gallery talk at 6:30pm on March 2. All are welcome to the gallery talk.
