The Wisconsin Watercolor Society will celebrate its 65th anniversary with an exhibit entitled, “Diverse Directions” in Gallery 110 North of the Plymouth Arts Center. The exhibit opens with a festive reception Friday, October 13th, 2017 from 4:30 to 7:00pm; the public is invited and admission is free. Live musical entertainment will be provided by Justin Schmitz from 5 to 6pm and Dr. Tom Armstrong, from 6 to 7pm. The exhibit runs through Friday, November 24th. Sargento and Plymouth Furniture and Bedding are graciously underwriting “Diverse Directions.”  

As its title suggests, the theme for this exhibit is ‘diverse directions,’ featuring how unique and diverse watercolor paintings can be presented. From soft and subtle colors to strong saturated pigments, the subjects of the paintings will be diverse as well. Landscapes, florals, portraiture, abstraction and non-objective will all be represented in this show.

The Wisconsin Watercolor Society was established in 1952 in Milwaukee. The group began with a few members and has grown to almost 100 members from throughout Wisconsin. The WWS was the first organization to be devoted exclusively to watercolor painting. Its purpose was then, and still is, to promote watercolor as an important medium with exhibits throughout the state of Wisconsin and to serve as a catalyst for those genuinely interested in watercolor.

Plymouth Arts Center gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10am-4 pm, Saturday - Sunday, Noon-3 pm. Closed Mondays and Holidays. Admission to Gallery 110 North is always free thanks in part to our generous sponsors. Tour Groups are always welcome.
