International Watercolor Exhibition Opens May 2NWWCS Logo

The venerable Northwest Watercolor Society has held annual group exhibitions since 1940 and is coming to Shoreline City Hall this spring and summer with 60+ paintings by artists all over the country as well as Greece, Malaysia, and Singapore. Within the medium of watercolor, visitors can expect to see a wide range of technique, from representational to abstract, and from gouache to egg tempera and other water media. 

Juried by nationally recognized painter Don Andrews (who had to pick from over 350 entries), the exhibition opens with a public reception at Shoreline City Hall on Saturday, May 2, 6:30 – 8:30 pm when prizes will be announced. The exhibition will run through Thursday, July 11, 2019 (last day) with regular gallery hours, M-F, 8:00-5:00 and by appointment.  more information
