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.

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.
