CF Webber Gallery Presents: 45th Annual Florida Watercolor Society Exhibition @ College of Central Florida - Webber Center
Sep 26 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

(OCALA, Fla.) Aug. 9, 2016 — The College of Central Florida Webber Gallery, 3001 S.W. College Road, will present the Florida Watercolor Society’s 45th Annual Exhibition Sept. 6-Oct. 21.

A reception will be held Friday, Sept. 23, from 5:30-7 p.m. The exhibit and reception are free to attend.

With more than 1,100 members, the Florida Watercolor Society is one of the largest state-based watercolor societies in the U.S. This exhibition, juried by national renowned watercolorist Ted Nuttall, features 100 watercolor paintings from Florida artists.

Nuttall is a figurative artist whose painting expression was born out of his observation of people. He states, “For as long as I can remembers, I have been a fascinated spectator of human behavior – the quintessential people watcher. I naturally seek the unique character in everyone I encounter. Often, as I observe someone in his or her everyday environment, I am rewarded with a moment when a gesture or expression is combined with the play of light and shadow. My paintings are an attempt to compose and thoughtfully record the nuances that transfixed these moments, these stories, in my mind.”

The exhibition’s works were created by highly skilled artists who use diverse techniques and paint in water-soluble media on a variety of surfaces, both synthetic and organic. The designs are both traditional and experimental, and created with highly saturated pigments. Watercolor can be applied to many different materials, including canvas, paper, clay-coated surfaces, and illustration board.

The exhibition coincides with the FWS annual convention at the Ocala Hilton, where 700 watercolorists will gather to take workshops. The public is invited to attend the convention Sept. 19-25, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit FloridaWatercolor.org for registration fees, workshop schedules and more.

The Webber Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gallery is closed Saturdays, Sundays, and college-observed holidays.  For more information call 352-873-5809, or visit CF.edu/Webber.
