The Green Country Watercolor Society will have a special exhibit, Art in the Rose District, at the Broken Arrow Historical Museum February 4 through March 26, 2015.
“Green Country Watercolor Society is excited about the upcoming show at the Broken Arrow History Museum. This is a beautiful space for showing our members’ work and for our show reception, and we are looking forward to an exciting evening and show. I will be showing ‘Pretty Boy’ as one of my entries. It is a reminder of the fun my family has had at Rooster Days celebrations,” stated Joann Burkeen.
“Excitement fills us as we look forward to our upcoming watercolor exhibit. The ability to showcase these local artists and their beautiful work to our community is part of our mission here at the museum,” stated Lori Lewis, executive director of the Broken Arrow Historical Society Museum.
Green Country Watercolor Society was founded in 2004 for the purpose of promoting awareness of and interest in watercolor painting, and for encouraging and assisting watercolor painters. Green Country Watercolor Society furthers the interest of painters in watermedia on paper by sponsoring programs and competitive exhibits. They sponsor major workshops that are led by painters who are recognized nationwide as experts in watermedia painting. They also sponsor two- and three-day workshops by local artists. These workshops are open to all who are interested in developing their watermedia painting skills. Programs are also presented at each of the regular monthly meetings, and are either demonstrations by local artist or presentations of art-related topics.
GCWS members are from many walks of life. Some are practicing artists, some are practicing instructors, and some are beginning watercolor painters. Others have painted in watercolor for many years, just for the enjoyment of the process of creating art in watercolor. All have a love of the art of watermedia painting.
GCWS meets the second Thursday of the month, January through November, at the First Presbyterian Church, 121 W. College St., in Broken Arrow. Membership is open to those who are interested in watermedia painting. Annual dues for each calendar year are $35. GCWS welcomes painters of all skills levels.
The group’s exhibit, Art in the Rose District, will be on display at the Broken Arrow Historical Museum located at 400 S. Main St. in Broken Arrow February 4 through March 26, 2015.
