Beautiful watercolors on display at Gallery at the Park

The Gallery at the Park’s April exhibit features beautiful works of art from the Mid-Columbia Watercolor Society.

The Mid-Columbia Watercolor Society is an organized group of artists that formed in 2015 with the purpose of encouraging watercolor in the Mid-Columbia region and promoting their members’ work. The group meets on the second Tuesday of every month at Yellow Dog Studio, located at 214-B Torbett Street in Richland.

Watercolor refers to a method of painting in which the paint is made of pigments in a water-based solution. Using water rather than oil gives the colors a more translucent look, resulting in a gorgeous palette of pale colors.

Membership for the Mid-Columbia Watercolor Society costs $20 a year, and paying members are given the opportunity to showcase their work at Mid-Columbia Watercolor Society exhibitions. To learn more, or to view some of their amazing work, visit facebook.com/groups/mcwcs.

The show will be on display at the Gallery at the Park from April 2 through April 26. The reception will be held on Friday, April 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.
