North East Watercolor Society 2022 Members’ Exhibition (Open to the Public -- Welcome!)

Sunday, 6 February, 2022
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM


Music in the Gallery is the theme for the Open Dates, February 12th & 20th. Viewing of the North East Watercolor Society 2022 Members’ Exhibition is available to visitors. Fifty-five works are installed in Orange Hall Gallery and Fringe. The variety of styles from tight representational to the loose use of the brush and water is demonstrated in the still lifes, land and seascapes, portraits, genre paintings, and semi-abstracts in the exhibit. This annual show offers the educational opportunity of seeing up-close how the water medium is handled.

To “jazz up” the show, professor/composer/pianist Chris Parker is playing his original jazz at the Saturday, February 12th afternoon Open Date from 1:30 till 3:30pm.

And during the following weekend, on Open Date, Sunday, February 20th, Albany-based pianist Geoff Hamburg will be at the Yamaha to play lively contemporary music from 1:30 till 3:30pm.

Music and Art complement each other. And enhancing the beauty of the artworks produced by the members of the North East Watercolor Society is an exhilarating task for the musicians. Come and enjoy.


The in-person/gallery show is on view through March 10. However, hours open to the general public are very limited, capacity numbers are limited because of social distancing, and masks are required regardless of vaccination status, all due to covid restrictions.
