Valley Watercolor Society

“Waterworks”

February 25 – March 14, 2009

Watercolor – it's luminous, dramatic, fresh, unpredictable, expressive, and totally captivating. The latest exhibit from Valley Watercolor Society is a beautiful show, with stunning work from established watercolor artists as well as several newcomers to our group, all showing a variety of styles in the medium of watercolor. These artists work in both abstract and representational approaches with vivid and subtle color palettes.
