The Red River Watercolor Society's The 2021 National Juried Watermedia Exhibition June 7 through August 7, 2021 4th Floor Gallery
In collaboration with the Red River Watercolor Society, we are honored to host the 2021 National Juried Watermedia Exhibition, a gorgeous annual showcase from some of the most talented artists in watermedia today. Participating artists come from around the world, including a large contingent from the Red River Valley, in an effort the Red River Watercolor Society first articulated in 1989: to provide a diverse selection of watercolor opportunities to RRWS members and to build a world-class community through education and exhibitions in Fargo-Moorhead. In this effort, the National Juried Watermedia Exhibition has grown to become one of the most stunning demonstrations of local art in the Upper Midwest.
The 2021 National Juried Watermedia Exhibition is juried by Robbie Laird, an innovative teacher, painter, and juror based in California and South Carolina. Laird is a past president of the National Watercolor Society and the San Diego Watercolor Society, as well as a signature member of Watercolor West and the National Association of Painters of Acrylic. Her work has been featured in Watercolor Magazine, American Artist, and International Artist Magazine, as well as Splash IV, North Light Books, and Artistic Touch 3.
The National Juried Watermedia Exhibition is funded by The Arts Partnership, with support from the Cities of Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo and from Sanford Health.
The National Juried Watermedia Exhibition is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
The Red River Watercolor Society is a vibrant, enthusiastic group of artists who express themselves through watercolor and acrylic paintings. RRWS serves water media artists in the Red River Valley Area of Minnesota, South and North Dakota. This nonprofit volunteer organization serves to promote the interest, display, and education in watercolor and other water-based media regionally, and nationally, through its flagship program, the National Juried Watermedia Exhibition. The Society was founded in 1989 with a charter membership of 13, which has now grown to over 180 artists. The Society’s vision encompasses projects to encourage new artists and invite more community participation. Its mission is to promote education, achievement, and inspiration for its members. The Society offers a variety of programs and opportunities addressing many aspects of the art profession including business, marketing, exhibition, artistic growth, and enhancement of art experiences in the community.
