Georgia Watercolor Society reunites for 2nd annual exhibit

Posted:

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — The excited chatter of the Georgia Watercolor Society Signature Members filled the Johns Creek Arts Center on Saturday, Jan. 26 during their second annual watercolor exhibit.

The event brought the best watercolor artists, their guests and the community together.

“A lot of us communicate through the Internet, but it’s nice to see the members actually displaying their work right alongside yours,” said artist Edith Hill Smith, who has been a signature member of the Georgia Watercolor Society for almost 25 years.

Kenny Hisle, who catered the event last year, said this year’s turnout was even greater than last year.

“It’s good to see how much recognition the artists are getting,” he said.

As discussions about the techniques used for each painting continued through the night, onlooker Sarah Jordan was drawn to Jerry Wray’s “Wild and Free.”

Jordan, a photography major at Georgia State University, said she enjoyed his painting because of the contrasting colors.

“And the obvious effort that he put into creating it,” Jordan said.

The exhibit at the Johns Creek Arts Center, 6290 Abbotts Bridge Road, Building 700, is free and continues from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday through March 2.
