Aqueous USA 2008 marks the 31st year for the exhibition, held at the Actors Theatre of Louisville with artists from 32 states competing. Juror Lien Zhen selected the 70 pieces making up the show; from these, twenty pieces were selected to travel. The JMAM is the fifth of twelve venues around the region.
“This is one of our oldest recurring exhibits,” stated Museum Administrator Paula Lisowsky. “It’s also a favorite of many of our local patrons. With the very active Watercolor Artists Guild of Lyon and Trigg Counties based right in Cadiz, appreciation for watermedia is strong.”
Museum hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, and 1:00 PM-4:00 PM on Sundays. More information is available by calling the Museum at (270) 522-9056 or visiting the website at www.jmam.org.
The Janice Mason Art Museum is a membership-funded, 501(c)(3) non-profit community arts center formed in 1998 to bring the arts to the people of Cadiz, Trigg County and the surrounding area. The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, supports the Janice Mason Art Museum with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
