June 4, 2022 - August 28, 2022 Weisel and Kelly Galleries
This is the 61st exhibition of Watercolor USA, a national, annual juried exhibition recognizing contemporary American watermedia painting. The event is open to artists (ages 18+) from all 50 states and U.S. territories and judged for a variety of prizes and possible purchase by the Museum. This year’s exhibition will be judged by Kevin Umaña, co-founder of The Ekru Project, a Kansas City-based artist-run gallery focused on contemporary, emerging, and historically excluded artists. Approximately $20,000 in cash awards are available; top awards are $3,000, $2,000, and $1,500 cash. Additional cash awards are generously provided by the Watercolor USA Honor Society.
Organized in 1962 by the Springfield Art Museum, this event aims to attract the best in contemporary American watermedia and strives to exhibit work by artists who are pushing the boundaries of the medium.
