Watercolor Exhibit Reception at St. Francis College

The 1100 Watercolor Society (www.1100watercolor.org) and (inadvertently — see my last blog post) the Brooklyn Watercolor Society (www.bws.org) are both having an exhibit at St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, Brooklyn Heights from Tuesday, Sept. 3 to Saturday, Sept. 29, open from 9am to 9pm.

The opening reception is Friday, Sept. 6 from 6-8pm.

I will have three paintings in this exhibit, all based on rock walls in various parts of the world.  Agra Wall is based on a wall I saw two years ago in Agra, India.

My fellow travelers couldn’t figure out why I was taking all those pictures of old, weathered walls.  Those cracked and peeling walls contrasted with the smooth marble of the Taj Mahal (also in Agra) were the perfect embodiment of the contradictions in modern India.  I loved them both, though it was the walls I wanted to paint.
