The Hill Country Arts Foundation is hosting the Texas Watercolor Society’s 71st National Exhibit, which opened May 4 in the HCAF Duncan-McAshan Art Gallery. This exhibit features watercolor pieces by more than 40 artists from across the United States.
In 1949, TWS was founded by Margaret Pace Willson and Amy Freeman Lee with the mission to advance the art of painting in watercolors, and hold annual exhibitions of watercolor paintings. Today, more than 60 years later, TWS continues to promote the high standards set by its founders. Thus, as a national exhibit, TWS proudly takes its place among the elite watercolor organizations in the nation.
“We are so pleased to have this wonderful national exhibit at HCAF,” says Rosanne Thrall, Visual Arts Center director. “The exhibit is absolutely stunning, with some of the best work I have seen, so I hope everyone will come see this show.”
The Texas Watercolor Society National Exhibit is open to the public for viewing until June 27. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, May 30 from 5-7 p.m. and the awards will be announced at 6 p.m.
The Hill Country Arts Foundation Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. HCAF is located at 120 Point Theater Rd. in Ingram, Texas. Call for information at 367-5121.
