Exhibition Dates:

This exhibition celebrates the distinctive qualities of the watercolor medium by examining works from 1881-1979. Artist Charles Burchfield once explained, “My preference for watercolor is a natural one. To paint in watercolor is as natural to me as using a pencil; whereas I always feel self-conscious when I use oil. Each work in this exhibition demonstrates the various ways artists use watercolors to evoke emotion and capture movement, time, and timelessness."
