The Warwick Atelier (Art School) is holding their ninth Annual Exhibition at the Albert Wisner Library, located at 1 McFarland Dr. in Warwick, now through Mon., Oct. 30 from 5 to 6:45 p.m. For the past two years, artists attending the Warwick Atelier have been exploring the new genre of “Experimental Watercolor” in addition to the more traditional trajectory the school has always embraced.
This exhibit offers a combination of both. The artists have met the new artistic challenge that the watercolor media presented as their work clearly illustrates the exciting, new creative paths they have taken. The exhibit can be viewed during regular library hours.
The Warwick Atelier is a studio art school located in Warwick under the direction of Susan Hope Fogel. Workshops in Experimental Watercolor, Plein Air painting and Floral/Still life painting are held throughout the year. For more information send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
