The Delaware Watercolor Society will return to Nassau Valley Vineyards and Winery for its summer juried fine art exhibition July 7 to 31.
Artists 18 and older residing in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia may submit up to two original works that have been created within the past three years in any water-based media, except for water-based oils. Multimedia works and collage are welcome as well, as long as a majority of the work is in water media. Works may be executed on paper, yupo, canvas, clayboard or other similar material. No digital art, digitally enhanced art or works developed during workshops will be accepted.
“We are excited to be back in the winery’s gallery and fortunate to have Walt Bartman as our juror and awards judge,” notes DWS President Elizabeth Collard.
Bartman has taught painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and photography for more than 30 years. Specializing in landscape and figure painting, he is known as one of Maryland's finest painting instructors, having taught more than 15,000 students, including 11 presidential scholars. He is director and founder of the Yellow Barn Studio in Glen Echo, Md., and Griffin Art Center in Frederick, Md., and has received numerous awards and recognition at the national and local levels for promoting art through education. He is listed in the Art and Artist Files in the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden Library Collection and has studied art in Belgium and the Netherlands under a Fulbright grant.
Nassau Valley Vineyards and Winery is at 3165 Winery Way, Nassau Commons, Lewes. The public is invited to the opening reception from 3 to 5 p.m., Sunday, July 7.
