This will mark the 29th for Aqueous, which is the annual juried exhibit sponsored by the Kentucky Watercolor Society. They are a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization of watercolor artists with about 500 members. The society was founded to “promote watercolors as an important medium and to provide support and educational opportunities for watercolor artists,” according to a press release.
Each year, they hold a competitive show and about 20 pieces are chosen
“It’s an honor to be selected for the traveling show,” said JMAM administrator Paula Lisowsky.
Museum volunteer Toni Wolfe said she loved watercolors and knew how hard they were to do well because she has recently taken up the medium herself. She described herself as a “budding artist,” although she said was not great at it. She said the Aqueous exhibits are always incredible.
“It’s almost as if you could pick the objects right off the paper,” she said. “It’s that beautiful.”
