After the lecture, you will have access to check out the museum’s current exhibition American Watercolor Society: 151st International Exhibition and Local Color. The American Watercolor Society (AWS) is a nonprofit membership organization that began in 1866 to promote the art of water media. Each year the AWS holds a juried exhibition that draws thousands of entries from artists throughout the world. The top selections are included in a traveling exhibition, touring museums and galleries nationwide. This exhibition includes portraiture, landscape, still life, abstract imagery and more.

Exhibiting concurrently is Local Color. Escondido artist and curator, Linda Doll, has brought together ten of our local signature member level artists from the American Watercolor Society and National Watercolor Society. Each watercolorist, working within their own style and theme, were asked to create new works for display and sale in this exciting exhibition.
