THE DALLES ART Center will host the Watercolor Society of Oregon’s (WSO) traveling show March 5 to 30. There will be an Opening Reception on Thursday, March 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. This collection of 20 award-winning works was selected from the 80 works juried into WSO’s 47th Annual Transparent Media exhibition, and they feature some of the finest watercolor artists in Oregon. The Traveling Show toured Oregon for five months and closes at The Dalles. “We’re delighted to showcase this diverse selection of original transparent watercolors,” said Gallery director Carmen Toll. “This exhibit continues the Watercolor Society’s tradition of featuring a fascinating array of artwork that ranges from traditional themes to semi-abstract visions. Each artist demonstrates an advanced ability to interpret their subjects in dynamic designs with highly personalized color palettes and brush strokes.” The exhibition is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m, Tuesday through Saturday.
