South Carolina Watercolor Society Adds Poster Show to Columbia, SC, Exhibits

The South Carolina Watercolor Society's (SCWS) 29th Annual Juried Exhibition: Watermedia Plus, is on display at City Art in Columbia, SC, through July 21, 2006.

Martha Mayberry, a curator at The Mint Museum of Art, juried the exhibition and almost $10,000 in awards were presented to the top thirty paintings. This premiere exhibit draws artists from across the state and features 53 paintings with a variety of work from representational to abstract. The main element that links this exhibit is the use of watermedia - and the organization embraces one of the broadest interpretations for the use of this medium nationally and thus allows artists more creative freedom.

A new exhibit, SCWS Art Posters from Artista Vista, will be on display at the McCrory Gallery in Columbia, from June 1 - 10, 2006. This is a fun and fresh approach to art and event marketing and provides young collectors the opportunity to purchase original art at an affordable price.

There are a half-dozen other exhibits featuring works by members of the SCWS on view in Columbia during the month of May.
