LEWISTON, Idaho – The Idaho Watercolor Society will open an exhibit at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History on Friday, Nov. 6, at 5 p.m. in the upstairs galleries of the Center, located at 415 Main Street in Lewiston. The exhibit will be on display from Nov. 6-30 and is free and open to the public.
The 36th Annual Idaho Watercolor Society Juried Membership Exhibition is a collection of 20 award winning paintings, along with paintings from Idaho Watercolor Society (IWS) members from across the state. The IWS is an organization which promotes the use of watercolor media, educates the public about watercolor painting, and gives a yearly scholarship to three student artists from various Idaho colleges. LCSC is one of the colleges where an art student receives a scholarship cash award.
The exhibit travels throughout the state from June through November and has been shown at the Boise State University Gallery, Twin Falls Center for the Arts, the Carr Gallery at the Idaho Falls Arts Council, and the Pocatello Art Center. The Center for Arts & History is the last stop of the exhibition’s tour.
The exhibit is brought to the community through grants from US Bancorp, the Idaho Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Open Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the gallery features free admission, but donations are welcome. For more information about the exhibition or to schedule a docent tour, visit www.lcsc.edu/cah or call 208-792-2243.
