  • Milwaukee-Waukesha, WI (1888PressRelease) April 25, 2014 - The Kenosha Public Museum, located on the picturesque shoreline of Lake Michigan, in Kenosha WI, is proud to announce the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, will once again be hosting its 38th Annual National Juried Exhibition at the Kenosha Public Museum. Join the TWSA members in the West and Southwest Galleries May 10th through August 10, 2014, to view these beautiful works of art, and discuss the true process of creating a genuine Watercolor.

    The Transparent Watercolor Society of America, as it is known as today, was founded in 1976 by Nora Stevens and Sybil Olson. The two artists shared a passion for transparent watercolors, and made the decision to begin a regional society called the Midwest Watercolor Society, with the first meeting being held in August 1977, in Duluth, Minnesota. Nora Stevens held the office of President, with logo designer Zoltan Szabo, Frank Webb, Cheng-Khee Chee, Irving Shapiro and Phil Austin filling the seats of the original Governing board. In 2003, it transitioned from a regional group to a national Society, becoming the TWSA that we know today, with well over 1,000 members including artists from across North America.

    It is written in the TWSA's Statement of Purpose, "From its inception, the purpose of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America has been to advance the stature and foster appreciation of watercolor as a major medium." and the current members continue that mission today. The Society provides their ever increasing membership with an artistic forum in which to express by holding National Exhibitions, providing members with the recognition potential for signature and master status. These exhibitions also serve as educational opportunities for both artists and those who appreciate art. It is the continuing goal of the TWSA to promote the use of transparent watercolors, watercolor in its purest form, by observing certain guidelines, for their entries, which marks the true distinction between transparent watercolor and other forms of water-based media. The use of white paint is forbidden. This omission requires the artist to preserve the white of the paper's surface, where highlights or whites are desired. All paint must be applied with a technique in such a way that will omit the possibility of a heavy or opaque quality to the painting, providing the overall transparent appearance desired.
