Watercolor is a medium that artists have employed not only to complete finished paintings, but also to sketch ideas, to work out compositions, to save a moment in time. Watercolor is a flexible medium that can be many things to many artists. The paintings in this exhibition are as varied as the State itself, from the southern tip on the banks of the Ohio River to the northern edge on the coast of Lake Erie. Spanning the years 1915 – 2015, we are able to see not only the breadth and depth of painting talent for which Ohio is recognized, but also the versatility of the medium. Because of the properties of watercolor paint–wet, runny, transluscent, and difficult to control–we see varied techniques in its usage.
