Museum Statement

The fluidity within the medium of watercolor offers artists a gamut of innovative and bold ways to express how they see the world. From the traditional transparent processes often capturing people, places and things in a realistic fashion, to expressive modern approaches encompassing the use of inks, gouache, acrylic and mixed media; watercolor, watercolors, watercolour, aquarelle, acuarela, etc., offer both the artist and viewer a chance to explore this unpredictable, uniquely challenging but beloved medium. Watercolor works in a variety of styles on paper, cotton, rag and fiber will be presented in this exhibition.
