American Watercolor Traveling Exhibition

Kerr Arts and Cultural Center opens the 143rd Annual International Traveling Exhibition of the American Watercolor Society, Inc. The show is shown only in a few venues throughout the United States and Kerr Arts and Cultural Center is the only host in Texas. The American Watercolor Society is a nonprofit membership organization that began in 1866 to promote the art of watercolor painting in America.

Each year the Society holds a juried exhibition of watercolors from artists throughout the world. The 2010 show was selected from a competition of 1080 images entered from 13 countries. Of the 101 paintings selected, 40 are selected for the traveling exhibition.

Those wanting to see the prestigious collection of 40 of the finest contemporary watercolor paintings can see them now through February 27th, at 228 Earl Garrett in downtown Kerrville, Texas. After the show closes in Texas, it will head to its final exhibition destination in Hagerstown, Maryland.

Kerr Arts and Cultural Center is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday 1 – 4 p.m. Additional information is available at www.kacckerrville.com or by calling 830-895-2911.
