41st Idaho Watercolor Society Juried Membership Exhibition

May 28 – June 27, 2021 

Student Union Fine Arts Gallery

Founded in 1979, the Idaho Watercolor Society is a non-profit organization promoting the use of watercolor media and educating the public about the significance of watercolor painting. Through programs, workshops, exhibitions and scholarships, IWS helps artists of all ages develop their talents and reach the highest standards of excellence. This exhibition showcases the breadth of styles the medium can achieve and highlights watercolor artists throughout Idaho. 

This year’s juror, Ted Nuttall, is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, San Diego Watercolor Society and enjoys Master Signature Status with both the Transparent Watercolor Society of America and Watercolor West. “I am rewarded with a moment when a gesture or expression combine 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.” Of the 50 paintings in the exhibition, Nuttall will choose 20 to exhibit to travel throughout Idaho.
