Watercolor Wisconsin 2016


Now in its 50th year, Watercolor Wisconsin continues to attract a wide range of artists from around the state. Limited only by their materials––aqueous media such as acrylic and watercolor––artists are free to create both two dimensional and three dimensional works on paper. This year’s show features a variety of subjects, from animals, flowers, and landscapes to figurative studies and the abstract.

Peter Power—Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Print Media at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago—and Doug Stapleton, Associate Curator of Art with the Illinois State Museum Chicago Gallery, an adjunct faculty in the Interdisciplinary Arts graduate program at Columbia College Chicago, and a visual artist—juried this year’s show. Power and Stapleton considered 272 works submitted by 155 artists, narrowing down the selection to 98 works by 75 Wisconsin artists.

Watercolor Wisconsin 2016 runs through April 22, 2017.
