Iowa Watercolor Society Exhibit in Orange City« Back to Events
ORANGE CITY – An art exhibit in April in Orange City will feature the work of 26 Iowa watercolor artists.
The 2011-12 Iowa Watercolor Society traveling show is being exhibited in several northwest Iowa communities this spring, including Orange City April 10 to May 3 at the Northwestern College DeWitt Theatre Arts Center.
The exhibit, sponsored by the Orange City Arts Council, is being held in conjunction with the Northwestern College theatre production, Mama D. A “meet the artists” reception will be held from 6:45 to 7:25 pm Saturday, April 28, prior to the final night of Mama D. Exhibiting artists from northwest Iowa hope to attend.
The juried exhibit features 30 paintings by artists from 16 Iowa towns and one from Nebraska, including watercolors by Barbara McGee of Peterson and Rose Kelly Peterson of Sioux City. Top place winners are Jan Vander Linden of West Des Moines, Missi Paul of Lincoln NE, Delores Frederick of Clear Lake, Jane Baty of Ames and Sarah DeLong of Grinnell.
Last year’s Iowa Watercolor Society juried exhibition featured Sojourners by Judy Thompson of Orange City, first place winner.
The Iowa Watercolor Society has been active for 35 years, and annually sponsors a juried exhibition. Don Andrews of Fairhope AL and three-time winner of awards from the American Watercolor Society, juried the 2011-12 show. He is the author of several books on watercolor and conducts painting workshops across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe and Africa.
Andrews looks for visually exciting pieces with originality of concept and design organization, he said.
