The Northwest Watercolor Society’s (NWWS) annual membership exhibition is set to run from Oct. 15-Nov. 22.

The exhibit, Waterworks Amplified, will be at Tsuga Fine Art & Framing, 10101 Main Street in Bothell.

“Witnessing the unique perspective of each artist to take an ordinary subject matter and [create] surprising aspects is always invigorating and inspirational,” said exhibition juror Soon Young Warren in a press release.

Warren chose 51 paintings out of more than 300 entries from member artists across the United States and Canada. The 2019 exhibition includes entries as small as 7 inches by 10 inches, under traditional glass and matted frame and without glass or mat.

“Our juror has selected some amazing works of art for the annual membersip exhibition Waterworks Amplified,” co-chair Lisa DeBaets said in the release.

“The high caliber of entries was impressive and only a small expression of the many talented member artists of NWWS,” added co-chair Jan Rinehart.

For the annual NWWS fall workshop, which sold out months ago, Warren is taking the class through exercises in “Painting Vibrant Watercolors,” the release states. She will also present the awards at the artists’ reception from 6:30-8 p.m. on Oct. 24 at Tsuga.
