Peninsula Gallery Presents: “Sunrise, Sunset”
The Peninsula Gallery is pleased to welcome back the prestigious Delaware Watercolor Society for another juried exhibition. The show, titled “Sunrise, Sunset”, is comprised of 37 works from the society’s Signature Members, showcasing a range of artistic talent and skills.
The juried watercolor paintings are landscapes that capture the evolution of an environment’s light and atmosphere during a day’s beginning and end. The 15 participating Signature Members have chosen to paint a variety of subjects — from lighthouses to boating trips, sandy animals and tropical plants. Yet, the majority stay close to Delaware’s scenery by featuring beach and water scenes. With such a range of images, this exhibition has something for every taste.
In 2004, a small group of artists joined together, bounded by their love of the watercolor medium. The group grew into the Delaware Watercolor Society, an organization with members from all walks of life. The society’s mission focuses on exploring, creating, and sharing the wonders of watercolor and other water media with new, emerging, and professional artists. Membership is open to all individuals 18 years or older, regardless of residency. DWS provides opportunities for education, group activities, mentoring, outreach programs, and artists' development through individual and group critiques and fine art exhibitions.
