"Outside the Box" Fall 2020 CCWS Members Only Juried Show


Entry Deadline: Midnight, June 23, 2020

The Central Coast Watercolor Society’s 2020 Fall Members Only Juried Show will be held at Art Center Morro Bay. All CCWS Members are encouraged to enter their best watermedia paintings. All entries must conform to the details in the show prospectus. 

This exhibition presents the best in watermedia painting, to the theme of  “Outside the Box, Try Something Different.” This year we are encouraging members to stretch their creative talents and try something they don’t normally paint. For example:  If you consider yourself a landscape artist, maybe think about trying an abstract landscape or even something completely non-representational. You get the idea. Or stretch even farther if you are up for the challenge. Try a portrait!

Artists may use subjects, materials and techniques, from experimental to traditional, to represent the theme. The goal is to encourage support for watermedia painting as a vital, enduring and expressive medium. 

This year’s show will be juried  and judged by Robert Burridge.

This show will use the same entry format as Aquarius shows, with photos of not more than 2 entries. Complete information will be in the prospectus which can be read or downloaded from the CCWS website after February 23.
