The Michigan Watercolor Society was founded in 1946 by an enthusiastic group of young artists who envisioned an organization to promote the awareness of watercolor in Michigan. Their aim was to further watercolor education, maintain high standards artistically, while based on the premise of integrity and professionalism, and to be a forum open to all points of view. Their emphasis on self-discovery and personal content, rather than technique alone, produced the painters who kept the MWCS alive.
This exhibition features the thirty award winning watercolor paintings from the Michigan Watercolor Society’s 72nd Annual Exhibition. Juror, Chris Krupinski, made exhibition choices based on a variety of considerations. He chose pieces with a broad selection of subject matter, genre and approach, as well as successful composition and design elements, and those that convey strong personal expressions of one kind or another.
The Berkowitz gallery is pleased to share these remarkable watercolor paintings with the UM Dearborn campus and greater community! Opening reception is free to the public. Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres provided.
