Watercolor works to go on view

     (NWPR-OH) – If you ask people, “What kind of paintings do you most enjoy?” — the answer is very often “Watercolor.”  Watercolor paintings are fresh, exciting, colorful, and very appealing.  Goers who enjoy seeing an excellent art exhibit will want to visit the Wassenberg Art Center in Van Wert to see the Ohio Watercolor Society Touring Exhibit, on display from Sunday, March 6 through March 27.  

     The exhibit features the best paintings selected from the OWS Annual Exhibit, including many award winners.  Jurors for the exhibit commented that they were impressed with the vitality, creativity and quality of the works submitted, as well as the great diversity of style, subject and approach.

     Both traditional and non-traditional watercolors are included.  Traditional watercolors feature the traditional transparent watercolor technique in which the white of the paper is reserved for any white areas.  Non-traditional work includes paintings done with watermedia such as acrylics, gouache, casein, and other water-soluble paints.  It may also include collage combined with water media. 

      For more information on Wassenberg Art Center exhibits and activities see: www.vanwert.com/wassenberg , or call 419.238.6837, or e-mail wassenberg@embarqmail.com.   A glossy catalog with photographs of the paintings in the exhibit will be available for a moderate price during the show.
