Art Adventure Gallery will present the Watercolor Society of Oregon (WSO) 49th annual aqueous media exhibit Traveling Show, featuring the 20 award-winning paintings.

This collection of 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 at four locations.

We're pleased to present this diverse selection of outstanding original water media works, and share them with art lovers and visitors to our region. The WSO has a long tradition of featuring Oregon's 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, featuring many of the finest watercolor artists in Oregon. 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.
