The TEF Traveling Art Exhibits continue with the 2015 Utah Watercolor Society at Grantsville Junior High School, October 5 – November 2, 2015. This is a great opportunity for members of the community to view first-class art without leaving the Tooele Valley! There will be nine exhibits in the 2015-2016 school year, and each will feature a unique art theme and artist(s). Check this schedule and add the dates to your calendar. You don’t want to miss out on this unique event.
Utah Watercolor Society is an organization which was founded in 1974 to “elevate watercolor and educate the public of the importance of watercolor as a creative, permanent art medium.” The society encourages its members to develop artistically and creatively and to share ideas and techniques with one another while providing opportunities for exposure of their art in exhibitions. In order to expand its horizons, the society has joined with the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, an organization with societies in ten western states sharing the same goals and mission.
Each year the Utah Watercolor Society sponsors a competition juried by nationally recognized watercolorists. From the show a selection of works are curated for the Utah Arts Council’s Traveling Exhibition Program.
