What Makes The Show Special

“Effigy” by Ruth Armitage, one of 80 paintings on display in this show

The show features 80 fine water-media paintings by artists from locations around the state of Oregon. The WSO website has a complete list of the 80 paintings.

What makes this show special is that experimental water-media pieces are accepted into the exhibition. That is, member artists may be creative about the supports (paper or board) they choose.

Also, they can experiment with types of water-based paint, including acrylic, gouache and transparent watercolor. Artists may add colored pencil, pastel and ink, for example, as long as the painting is mainly water media.

One more thing, we would like you to know that all the paintings are for sale!

“The Spaces Between Light And Dark” by Angela Grainger, another of the 80 paintings on display
