Written by 

art gall86Haywood County Arts Council will exhibit works by the Blue Ridge Watermedia Society from April 10 through April 27, at Gallery 86 in Waynesville. The artist reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 12 at the gallery. 

 

The exhibit features work by members of the Blue Ridge Watermedia Society, a group with more than 100 members. Participating artists include: Wendy Cordwell, Nick DePaolo, Tracy Palmer, Carolyn Taylor, Joseph Honings, Lolly Krieder, Mary Reida, Lynne Wortmann, Peggy Duncan and Mary Decker.

The Blue Ridge Watermedia Society group has grown steadily since it was organized in the early 1990s. Meetings of the society take place at 6:45 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month at the Haywood Community College’s Continuing Art & Education Building. Members paint in a variety of media, not just watercolor as the name suggests. Members share tips and experiences, and local artists provide demonstrations and teach workshops of which members can take advantage.

The showcase and reception are free and open to the public. www.haywoodarts.org.
