38th Annual National Juried Exhibition
Daily Event: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (CDT)
The Kenosha Public Museum, located on the picturesque shoreline of Lake Michigan, in Kenosha WI, is proud to announce the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, will once again be hosting its 38th Annual National Juried Exhibition at the Kenosha Public Museum. Join the TWSA members in the West and Southwest Galleries May 10th through August 10, 2014, to view these beautiful works of art, and discuss the true process of creating a genuine Watercolor.
The Transparent Watercolor Society of America, as it is known as today, was founded in 1976 by Nora Stevens and Sybil Olson. The two artists shared a passion for transparent watercolors, and made the decision to begin a regional society called the Midwest Watercolor Society, with the first meeting being held in August 1977, in Duluth, Minnesota. Nora Stevens held the office of President, with logo designer Zoltan Szabo, Frank Webb, Cheng-Khee Chee, Irving Shapiro and Phil Austin filling the seats of the original Governing board. In 2003, it transitioned from a regional group to a national Society, becoming the TWSA that we know today, with well over 1,000 members including artists from across North America.
