OSA Water Media Show

Deadline May 30, 2024

May 2-30, 2024
Online Viewing: May 3 – July 5, 2024
The Gallery at OSA is pleased to announce the Spring Water Media Juried Show! This exhibition invites submissions in all types of water soluble media, such as watercolor, gouache, acrylic, chalk pastel, etc. Whether your watercolors drip and flow, or you dry brush acrylic paint, we want to see your work created in water-based media. Open to any and all subject matter, this exhibition aims to showcase the beauty and diversity of water media in all of its captivating forms.

The Water Media Show will be juried by Sandra Pearce, an accomplished artist. Sandra Pearce was born in England; the family immigrated to America in the early 60’s. While crossing the Atlantic on the RMS Queen Mary, she won first place in the children’s drawing competition.
Art has always been at the forefront, and painting emerged as the expression of choice. A trip to Tuscany, Florence, Venice and the Italian Riviera ignited a new spark of excitement in Sandra’s work – she has countless future painting ideas from her travels around the USA, Europe and Canada.
