Brilliant and beautiful, to be sure. On view now at the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, is a can’t-miss display of mastery in watercolor from many of the state’s most celebrated and collected artists.
Featuring 56 paintings from the studios of 40 Wisconsin artists (all members of the Wisconsin Watercolor Society), the WWS is overjoyed to be hosting its annual fall exhibition. The exhibition “depicts a wide variety of styles of watercolor and includes artists from all corners of the state from Lac du Flambeau to Lake Geneva, and from Wausau to Racine” the organization states. “The artist community of Door County has a long history of working in watercolor” added Deborah Rosenthal – curator of exhibits at the Miller Art Museum – “We are pleased to have the opportunity to exhibit such excellent works varying widely in style from the abstract to highly realistic.”
