Tennessee Watercolor Society Exhibition
July 5 – August 20, 2021 | The Arts Center
Opening Reception: Friday July 16, 2021 at 5:00pm | The Arts Center
An exhibition of work from members of the Tennessee Watercolor Society from the Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Tri-Cities areas.
Athens Area Council for the Arts (AACA) is proud to host “50th Anniversary Celebration: An Exhibition of the Eastern Tennessee Members of the Tennessee Watercolor Society.” This is an exhibit by Knoxville, Chattanooga, and Tri-Cities chapters of the Tennessee Watercolor Society from July 5 through August 20, 2021 at The Arts Center in Athens.
Tennessee Watercolor Society (TnWS) is the largest and most respected organization in Tennessee dedicated to the exploration and advocacy of water media. Through the efforts of Marie Spaeder Haas and local artist Sandy Brown, this has become one of our favorite Biennial exhibitions at The Arts Center, with continually high sales and attendance.
Athenian artists have long been represented in the prestigious society as revered painters Betty Grater and Frances Graves are longtime signature members and past officers. Dee Hoffman, an Etowah artist, instructor, and AACA exhibitor/artist is a member, as is AACA’s beloved watercolor instructor, Sandy Brown. When Brown, a signature member of TnWS, made a proposal on behalf of the society, AACA’s visual arts committee was eager to collaborate.
The exhibition includes active, associate, and signature members from both the Knoxville, Chattanooga, and Tri-Cities chapters of the society.
Exhibiting artists are to be announced as finalizations are completed.
Art enthusiasts may mingle with the artists and learn about techniques and processes from the artists themselves at our opening reception to be hosted on Friday, July 16 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. This, as well as exhibit attendance during its show here at The Arts Center, is free.
