The Delaware Watercolor Society’s current exhibit is on display at the Biggs Museum of American Art, 406 Federal Street, Dover, Delaware, through September 20.
Selection of works by 24 artists and determination of award winners were conducted by juror Joel Popadics, American Watercolor Society Signature Artist and one of the nation’s top watercolorists.
The first-place award went to Wendy Leddy for “Windmills in the Mist.” The second-place award was garnered by Isabel Pizzolato for her work “The Blacksmith’s Fence,” and third place went to Kathleen Cropper for “Low Tide at Peggy’s Cove,” a watercolor piece on yupo. Merit Awards were presented to Daphne Blaker for “Homeward Bound” and Paige Ruby for “Spring Soldiers.”
Delaware Watercolor Society extends congratulations to all the winners and a special thank you to Biggs Museum curator Ryan Grover, who helped make this exhibit possible.
