Exhibiting during July 2019 in the Mazie Jones Gallery:
High Country Watermedia Society
Founded in 1997, the High Country Watermedia Society is a group composed of artists and art enthusiasts of all skill levels from the mountains of North Carolina and nearby towns of Virginia and Tennessee. The group’s purpose is to promote watermedia through education, hands-on experience, member exhibitions, and art endowments.
High Country Watermedia Society members create their art with water-based materials, which include watercolor paint, gouache, casein, egg tempera, acrylic, watercolor crayon, water soluble ink, and much more. Local artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts make up the membership of HCWS and gather to create, promote, and appreciate all watermedia art.
The group meets six months of the year, from May through September. All meetings are held the second Saturday of the month at Cheap Joe’s Art Studio and Workshop in Boone. Registration is at 9:30am with meetings beginning at 10:00am. Artists of all levels are welcome. Optional, fee-based society-sponsored workshops are held following most meetings.
