39th Annual South Carolina Watermedia Society Juried Exhibition
Saturday, November 12, 2016 | 4 – 6 pm
Free and open to the public
The South Carolina Watermedia Society (est. 1977), the only statewide visual arts organization in South Carolina, nurtures and promotes artists who work in watermedia (ie watercolor, acrylic, gouache, casein and mixed media in conjunction with watermedia on any surface) by providing exhibition opportunities, professional development and educational programs. The Art Museum is proud to host the Society’s 39th Annual Juried Exhibition, with winning pieces traveling around the Sate after leaving its premier venue here in Myrtle Beach.
This year’s juror is artist and author Marc Taro Holmes, also known as “The Citizen Sketcher.” Holmes graduated with a BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design (Calgary, Alberta, CAN) in 1995 and enjoyed a 15-year career art-directing video games for studios, including Microsoft, Electronic Arts and Disney. He is the author of The Urban Sketcher: Techniques for Seeing and Drawing on Location. Holmes has been a correspondent for and board member of urbansketchers.org since 2009. He now lives and works in Montreal.
