Tasteful Watercolors arrive at Black Market Gourmet

The Watercolor Society of Oregon (WSO) 49th annual aqueous media exhibit Traveling Show will be on exhibit at Black Market Gourmet from September 4th to 30th. The public is invited to the Opening reception on Sunday, September 7th  from 2 to 4 pm. The venue is located at 495 Central Avenue, Coos Bay, and the exhibit is open Tuesday through Friday 11 am to 6 pm, (subject to catering schedules) or by appointment.

This collection of the 20 award-winning works was selected from the 80 works juried into WSO's annual Spring Exhibition by California artist and juror Robert Burridge. The Traveling Show tours Oregon for five months and will conclude at this location.

Co-Owner of Black Market Gourmet, Kristin Hoefer, states, "We're pleased to present this diverse selection of outstanding original water media works, and share them with art lovers, diners, and visitors to our region.

The WSO has a long tradition of featuring many of Oregon's finest water media painters, working in a broad spectrum of styles from traditional themes to semi-abstract visions, from portraits to celebrations of nature. Each artist demonstrates an advanced facility to interpret their subjects in dynamic compositions with highly personalized color palettes and brush strokes".

WSO is a statewide non-profit watercolor organization in its 49th year, with over 900 members.  The society is committed to furthering the interest of aqueous watermedia, which includes watercolor and acrylic paintings, by providing educational opportunities both for its members and others interested in the visual arts.
