Six weeks ago, when the WAS-H volunteer community was excitedly engaged in preparation for the IWE, we could not have imagined the current crisis we are living through. It reminds me of the important role art plays in society during times of crisis. Creativity is born deep in the human psyche, generated by every kind of human experience imaginable - including crisis and stress! Taking time to restore and renew ourselves is important. Today we are launching an on-line gallery of the 43rd IWE show. Take time out of your day to view these 90 beautiful pieces of art. They will lift your spirit! Eric Wiegardt, our juror, focused on artists whose work demonstrated creativity, originality and heart, as well as skill and proficiency in watercolor.
Please check our website regularly for updates about WAS-H events. And please — take care and stay safe! This is a great time to pull out your paints, take an on-line class, watch those watercolor videos on your shelf. We are going to reinitiate our 30 Watercolors in 30 Days Corona 2020 Paint-Off for you to post your work! It will help us all to keep our spirits up.
Take care and stay safe,
