Southern Arts Society (SASi) first hosted the National Watercolor Society (NWS) Traveling Show in 2013 and is excited to see it return to their galleries October 1 through 30, 2016.
SASi is the only Southeast location to showcase this amazing collection of water based media. The traveling exhibit consists of 31 paintings by artists from around the world selected for the traveling show after being juried into the prestigious NWS International Exhibit held in San Pedro, California last year. Over 1000 entries were submitted into last year’s competition, with 6 countries being represented in the traveling show alone. To be included in NWS exhibits, the painting must be primarily water based media on a paper surface and unvarnished. Pastel or collage, if used, must be in conjunction with the water media. The water media must be the dominant element.
Southern Arts Society will kick off the NWS Traveling Show with two events.
The Patrons Premier Night on Friday September 30, from 6-8 pm, is an exclusive celebration for sponsors and invited guests. Sponsor levels begin at $50 and include an invitation to our Patrons Premier Night. This private reception features heavy hors d’oeuvres, North Carolina wines, and live music with harpist Claire Marie Stam. Dress is artsy-semi-formal.
All levels of support are important to us and are greatly appreciated. Sponsors will be recognized in our publicity, social media and event program. Please fill out the NWS sponsor form in the header above and return as soon as possible to be included in our publicity and join our us at the Patrons Premier Night on September 30th. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you now for your tax deductible donation.
The festivities continue Saturday October 1 from 6-8 pm with a free reception for the general public. Dress is artsy-casual. Please join us as we welcome this exquisite international exhibition of original watercolor paintings to Southern Arts Society.
