Heartfelt | Works from the Personal Collections of Southeastern Ohio Watermedia Society Members
October 10, 2015-March 2016

While most artists are happy when their work sells, it isn’t always easy to part with favorite pieces. Some works have just too much personal meaning to let go, and the artist decides to hold on to them. This fall, a number of these particularly treasured works will be exhibited together in Heartfelt: Works from the Personal Collections of South East Ohio Watermedia Society Members. This one-of-a-kind exhibition features paintings chosen by watermedia society artists as the most beloved and treasured piece in each of their personal collections.

Now in its 38th year, the Southeast Ohio Watermedia Society spans six counties. It works to further the public interest in water-based artistic media through member workshops, exhibitions, and other special events. Members work in all water-soluble media including watercolor, acrylic, ink, and tempera. The society encourages creativity in combining these water-based forms or incorporating them into collage or other mixed media. The resulting body of work features a range of innovative styles and techniques that succeed on both a technical and emotional level.   

Heartfelt will be on view until March 2016 in the museum’s Linn Auditorium.
