GWS 2020 Exhibition Goes Digital

The Georgia Watercolor Society’s 41st National Exhibition was set to premiere on March 14th at the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art. However, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic delayed the opening of the exhibition and, eventually, forced the museum to close its doors to the public. In light of these extraordinary circumstances, the GWS has made the exhibition entirely digital, available online for everyone to view.

The juried exhibition features 74 original watermedia submissions from across the United States. Signature GWS member and acclaimed watercolorist Linda Baker juried the exhibit online. Here’s a look at a few of the top winners.

First Place: “Illumination” (watercolor, 23 3/4 x 16 3/4) by Jane Stoddard
Second Place: “Sweet and Sour II” (watercolor, 30 x 22 in.) by Chris Krupinski
Third Place: “Kind of Blue” (mixed media, 16 x 20 in.) by Georgia Mason
