First Friday reception Sep. 1, 7-9pm
The Western Colorado Watercolor Society (WCWS) has a members’ show every other year. While the show is open to all members, it definitely has a local flavor, as all work must be hand-delivered, no shipments. This is a watermedia exhibition, being open to acrylics and gouache as long as paintings have the appearance of watercolor. The local talent does a variety of work, from abstract to representational, and portrays a range of subject matter. While the show is not juried, it is judged. This year’s judge is Patricia Barr Clark. Ms. Clark will also conduct a plein-air workshop with a half day spent painting in the Monument.
Watercolor is fun and cleans up easily. Lighting, gestures, and feelings can be captured quickly. There are year-round opportunities to learn the skills on exhibit through the knowledge of WCWS members. Several of the exhibiting artists will be present at the opening reception and available to discuss their work and techniques. Additional information can be found in the show prospectus, which is on the WCWS website: wcwsociety.org.
