If water media is your thing, then you won’t want to miss this exhibition. Featuring some of the best watercolor artists from across the Western Slope, the Western Colorado Watercolor Society (WCWS) has put together an exhibit that is sure to take your breath away.

Watercolor is one of the most difficult mediums to work with. Its permanence, gesture, and vibrancy offer a unique visual appeal. The fluid quality of the pigment and various textures of paper trimmed with decaled edges speak to the human quality and originality of each individual work. Artists interpret their surroundings, considering their experiences and, sculpting through paint, leave pockets of negative space that represent the saturation of light and further demonstrate the difference in value and color that construct the world we share.
