FMAAA to host state Watercolor exhibit

Traveling exhibit will be in Fort Madison through February

FORT MADISON - The FMAAA Art Center Main Gallery provides the venue for hosting the travelling exhibition of Iowa's best and brightest watercolorists for the month of February. 
The Iowa Watercolor Society was organized in 1977 by a small group of enthusiastic watercolorists. IWS now celebrates more than 150 members and offers the opportunity for interested painters to network with artists statewide.
The Opening Reception for this amazing show is 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. this Friday, February 3rd. Stop in for light snacks and beverages and take in some of Iowa's finest work. 
This travelling exhibit moves to Fort Madison from the Mt Pleasant Main Street Art Center, and Art Domestique in Washington before that, and will be showing in the Main Gallery at FMAAA through the month, then at Addington Place for March. We are grateful for the sponsorship and support of Addington Place to help make these two months of exhibition possible.
The Art Center will be hosting two different watercolor classes this month. Beginners or people who have always wondered about how to engage with this medium are encouraged to try out the monthly class by Jerri Sparks on Wednesday, February 22 or the Watercolor Workshop being put on by Watercolor Society artists Vicky Prosser and Mary Johnson on Saturday, February 25th.
For more information about the classes or to register contact the Art Center at 319-372-3996.
