Post Date:01/04/2018 2:24 PM

The Betty Feves Memorial Art Gallery will host an exhibit of 20 award-winning paintings selected from the Watercolor Society of Oregon’s (WSO) bi-annual juried exhibition of 80 pieces by noted artist and juror Paul Jackson. The WSO Traveling Show will appear at the Feves Gallery as part of its 5-month tour around the state. The community is invited to attend an Opening Reception on Thursday, Jan. 11, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at Blue Mountain Community College. The event is free, family-friendly, and light refreshments will be served.

The exhibit, which includes work by 20 artists, encompasses a broad spectrum of subject matter, from landscapes to semi-abstract visions, from portraits to celebrations of nature. The images capture the vibrant beauty of everyday life as viewed through the artists’ eyes. Each artist interprets their subjects in dynamic compositions with highly personalized color palettes and brush strokes; the result is a truly unique and beautiful show.

WSO is a statewide organization founded in 1966 with more than 900 current members. The primary activities of WSO are holding exhibitions of members’ work and providing educational opportunities, both for members and others interested in the creation and appreciation of the visual arts.

The Gallery is located in BMCC’s Pioneer Hall on the Pendleton Campus at 2411 NW Carden Ave., and is a non-profit exhibit space connecting emerging and established artists and their work with students, staff and the general public in eastern Oregon.
