Exhibit Juror and Workshop Artist:
The Exhibit was selected by Artist, Pat Dews. She is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society (AWS) and the National Watercolor Society (NWS). Dews creates experimental work in watermedia that captures the abstract essence of nature. Pat is the author of “Creative Composition & Design (The Painter’s Workshop)”, 2003, and “Creative Discoveries in Watermedia”, 1998, published by North Light Books.  Dews’ videos: “Designing Great Starts with Texture and Form” and “Lets Get Started Finishing” are available through Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff.
Tennessee Watercolor Society Mission:  TnWS was formed in 1971 to elevate the stature of watercolor as an important, creative, permanent painting medium and to educate the public to the significance of painters in all water media by its programs and competitive exhibits. We encourage its study by art students and others engaged in watercolor paintings as well as all visual arts. We present watermedia in an aqueous manner, on paper and presented behind glass.
