College Art Faculty Curates Watercolor Invitational

October 29, 2008
In an effort to reconnect the watercolor community and the academic community, Anoka-Ramsey Community College art faculty and curator Margaret B. Bussey has invited regional artists using watercolor as a primary medium to show together at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery in Minneapolis.
"Le Prince Charmant" by Tara Sweeney  
"Le Prince Charmant" by Tara Sweeney, an Augsburg College faculty member, was selected by Anoka-Ramsey Community College art faculty, artist and now curator Margaret B. Bussey for display at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery exhibition of watercolor work. A public reception, Friday, Nov. 14, 6 to 8:30 p.m. will open WATERBORNE, a Regional Exhibition of Watercolor, which runs through Dec. 11, 2008.  
"Purple Kale" by Catherine Hearding "Purple Kale" by Catherine Hearding, current President of the Minnesota Watercolor Society and teacher at Como Park's Botanical Art program in St. Paul, is one of the many works selected by Anoka-Ramsey Community College art faculty, artist and now curator Margaret B. Bussey for display at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery. This exhibition of watercolor work, titled WATERBORNE, a Regional Exhibition of Watercolor, opens Nov. 11 and runs through Dec. 11, 2008. A public reception has been scheduled for Friday, Nov. 14, 6 to 8:30 p.m.  

This exhibition of watercolor work from some of the finest watercolor artists in the region, titled WATERBORNE, a Regional Exhibition of Watercolor, opens Nov. 11 and runs through Dec. 11, 2008. Also featured will be a concurrent exhibition, Watercolors from the Weisman Art Museum.

A public reception has been scheduled for Friday, Nov. 14, 6 to 8:30 p.m. After the reception, general gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. All events at the Nash are free and open to the public.

The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is located on the first floor of the Regis Center for Art in the heart of the West Bank Arts Quarter, 405 21st Ave. S. on the University’s West Bank Campus. Parking is available in the 21st Ave. Ramp.

Students and lovers of watercolor, and painting in general, will relish the opportunity to see works by nationally acknowledged masters, members of area watercolor societies and area college-level art teachers. Visual approaches range from traditional landscapes, still life and figurative work to abstraction, and post-modern narrative.

"This has been an amazing opportunity to meet and talk with accomplished watercolor artists from our region," says Bussey. "Many shared with me stories of how they had been encouraged as young people by a specific, dedicated teacher and lover of the medium. Their fresh work belies a range of ages from 30 to 80 years of age!"

The Twin Cities area is recognized for its community of watercolor artists. WATERBORNE and Watercolors from the Weisman Art Museum promise to be most exciting exhibitions, exhibitions which will command an enthusiastic response from area audiences.
