The Miami Watercolor Society Annual Spring Juried Exhibition launched on April 3rd and will run through Friday, April 27, 2012. It is being hosted at the Wirtz Gallery, in South Miami.
Miami Watercolor Society (MWS) was founded in February 1974 by Peter Drew. He brought together a group of painters who shared his interest in exploring the watercolor medium and they formed the original charter membership of 66 artists. Their first exhibition was held in November of that same year.
MWS is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization whose membership consists of a broad spectrum of water media painters. The culturally diverse society informs and educates members and others by providing workshops, exhibitions, demonstrations and publications.
Miami Watercolor Society's mission is to teach and promote watercolor painting. In their ongoing effort to follow their mission, every year with the help of their partners, they sponsor "Impressions in Watercolor" a juried art show, among students of all ages in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools and a watercolor workshop for their teachers.
This exhibition features artwork that encompasses a wide range of watermedia styles by members and non-members - students, amateurs, and professionals. The event is open according to the galleries hours, which are: Mondays-Thursdays 9 a.m.-4 p.m.; Fridays until 6 p.m. The exhibition is free to the public, so stop by to see some amazing watercolor creations.
Watercolor is fascinating as there are endless layers of color and dimension that are created simply through the amount of paint applied or blotted from the piece. It is one of this artist's favorite mediums and now I need to break out my paints again!
