FALLBROOK – The American Watercolor Society’s travel show features 40 paintings from the 155th annual New York exhibition. Fallbrook Art Center will be the only venue to present this show on the West Coast, opening Friday, Feb. 10.
The show will be combined with a new Fallbrook Art Center offering, “The Artful Home.” The combined exhibition will feature artisan furniture, lighting and other decor items to inspire viewers to create their own “Artful Home.”
In 1996, the newly founded Fallbrook Art Center, was the first venue in the U.S. to present the travel shows from both the American and National Watercolor societies at the same time. The event helped to launch Fallbrook into an art destination in Southern California. Fallbrook Art Center's goal continues to be to present innovative, intriguing shows supporting the community, artists and collectors.
The show is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays, noon to 3 p.m. through March 12. Admission is free to all members, center patrons, active military, under 18 and students with ID; for others, admission is $6. Or, take advantage of the new membership special – admission charge will be credited towards the membership fee. For $35 a year, members can enjoy free admission to all shows at the Fallbrook Art Center. Parking is free.
Also showing, in The Salon & Lehmann Galleries, is an exhibition of original acrylic, mixed media and watercolor works by Barbara Marks.
“Life is forever changing and like lines, life has its twists and turns, through thick and thin times,” Marks said. “Sometimes life feels like a fragile line, sometimes it provides us strength and stability through relationships of love and compassion.
“Nature provides lines of peace and quiet and yet life lines take us through mountains and valleys, through pain and recovery. My art is an ever changing creative line reflecting these experiences that we can all relate to,” she said.
This exhibition runs from Saturday, Feb. 11, to Sunday, May 28.
