Wet & Fresh: A Survey of Current Watercolor in Western New York
April 3-June 27
Opening Reception: Friday, April 2, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Charles E. Burchfield (1893-1967) was renowned for his unique mastery of watercolor painting, affecting generations of artists and establishing national respect for the medium. This exhibition, the first of its kind at the Burchfield-Penney, will demonstrate how Western New York artists are currently using watercolor. Gerald Mead, curator of education and outreach at the Burchfield-Penney, and noted regional watercolorist Rita Argen Auerbach have selected a number of works by fine artists, illustrators, and designers to explore the range of styles, approaches, and applications of watercolor.
The work runs the gamut from photo-realism to abstraction and features the talents of prominent practitioners in the field as well as emerging artists.
This survey will include work by painters Lorna Berlin, Charles Clough, Thomas Aquinas Daly, Pat Fortunato, Walter Garver, Dianne Hickerson, Robert Holland, Ani Hoover, Yenfen Huang, Margaret M. Martin, Joseph Orffeo, Catherine Parker, David Pratt, Evette Slaughter, Alma Slotkin, Arthur Smith, E. Jane Stoddard, and Joseph Whalen; costume designer Catherine Norgren; illustrators Philip Burke (whose work, Lily Tomlin, is shown here) and Carol Woodin; and architectural renderings from Cannon Design.
