Feves Gallery to host watercolor exhibit
The Betty Feves Memorial Gallery will feature the work of seven watercolor artists from eastern Washington in an exhibit set to open on Thursday, Jan. 9. The community is invited to attend an opening reception for the exhibit Jan. 9 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The event is free, family-friendly, will feature an artist talk at 5 p.m., and light refreshments will be served.
The exhibit, “Watercolor Views in Different Hues,” includes paintings by Joyce Anderson, Deborah Bruce, Beverly Camp, Ellen Heath, Susan Owen, Susan Price, and Colleen Reser. Each artist brings their own unique perspective and techniques to fill the Gallery with watercolor paintings representing a range of inspiration, from landscapes to animals to still lifes. The exhibit will also include eeducational posters with watercolor painting tips and techniques.
A long list of awards from a variety of shows over the last decade exists between the seven artists. Owen received the Director’s Award at the 2018 Allied Arts Juried Art Show, and Price has received several Fine Arts Best of Show awards, blue ribbons and People’s Choice Awards at the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days. Anderson will display a watercolor in the exhibit that received the Eastern Washington Watercolor Society Award at the Allied Arts Juried Art Show in 2015.
