American Watercolor Society: Selected Artists 2013

Last week the American Watercolor Society announced the names of the artists selected for the 146th Annual Exhibition (2013).  It's customary for the show to travel to a number of different venues throughout the USA over the course of one year.

Below you can find the names of the selected artists PLUS links to their websites (and, where identified, their blogs).  I've highlighted signature members in bold. The titles of blogs spotted while finding links are italicised and included in brackets.

The main conditions of entry are as follows
The Annual Exhibition is open to all artists working in water soluble media: watercolor, acrylic, casein, gouache and egg tempera on paper. Canvas is not accepted.

No collage, pastels, class work, copies, digital images or prints; original work only. The artwork may not be a copy or likeness of another’s work (i.e. painting, drawing, photograph, digital image or print). Only original artwork is accepted.
I've really enjoyed taking a look at the watercolour paintings of the artists selected for the exhibition.  Interestingly far more artists in the USA seem to work in transparent watercolour rather than opaque paint.  There's intense competition to be selected for this show and I suggest that any aspiring watercolour artist should take a look at their work.

Watercolor has always been my favorite medium; it is just so light feeling, which by definition is probably inherent. Still, I love it and wish I could find events such as these around here.

some super amazing painters...Dean Mitchell & Joseph Alleman are my favorites. i think it's not only their style but subdued palette.
