Peace Watercolour Society

September 25 - October 27

Painting by Judy Brown

 

Peace Watercolour Society

Exhibition and Sale

 

The Peace Watercolour Society was formed more than 45 years ago by a group of Peace Country artists and the first group exhibit was opened in the Dawson Creek Art Gallery in the spring of 1976.

 

The group’s original goal was to maintain and promote the tradition of transparent watercolour in the Peace Region and mixed media was discouraged.  This is still true of the current members although recently the group has agreed to the sparing use of inks, watercolour pencils etc. to enhance the pure medium. All paintings are original and the Society does not accept copies.

 

Current members of the Peace Watercolour Society include Marjorie Henn from Beaverlodge, Judith A Brown from Spirit River, Carolyn Kosabeck from Spirit River, Angela Fehr from Dawson Creek, Mimi Zhang Mackie from Goodfare and Julius Miraflor from Grande Prairie. The Society with participants from both sides of the Alberta – British Columbia boundary are held together by a common goal to express impressions of our environment in watercolour paintings.   The Peace Country, with its diverse population and wonderful landscape, offers an incredible variety of subject matter for these artists: each captures this beauty in his or her own style.
