Founded in 1993, the Guadalupe Watercolor Group is one of Kerr County’s most enduring and prolific arts organizations. The group’s 2017 annual juried show, hosted as always by Kerr Arts & Cultural Center, will run from September 28th through October 21st with dozens of members showing their latest, most exciting Watermedia work. The Group is active year-round, hosting workshops and demonstrations by both local and nationally-recognized Watermedia painters to provide in-depth learning opportunities for members.
Also from September 28th through October 21st, artists Kathleen Cook and Joyce Barton present “The Heart Feels. The Eye Sees. The Hand Moves.” Barton will display 26 insightful views of the rivers in flood as well as life below the surface, while Cook’s 26 paintings focus on the Cypress trees that stand watch over the rivers, the lone survivors of time and man.
According to Cook and Barton, “This collection of paintings celebrates the gift of rivers that flow through our community and our lives. The rivers are living things, always moving and changing. They each have their own personalities and stories. We should not take their presence for granted. We are meant to be wise caretakers of the rivers, the part we see and use and the part that flows downstream. We hope that a river will always run through us for many lifetimes to come.”
The public reception for both October shows will be held at KACC on Saturday, September 30th from 2-4 pm. Delicious refreshments including food and both wine and non-alcoholic beverages are provided by KACC members at no charge.
