RAM's Wustum Museum continues a splendid Racine tradition with the opening of Watercolor Wisconsin 2009. As one of the museum's most popular annual shows, this exhibition brings together works from artists throughout the state of Wisconsin. Organized by the museum since 1966, Watercolor Wisconsin exhibitions have established Wustum Museum as a center for watercolor activity in the Midwest. This year's show features 109 pieces by 88 Wisconsin artists.
Of 295 pieces submitted by 164 artists, approximately one third of the pieces were chosen for this year's show. Three new works from this year's competition will be purchased for the Racine Art Museum's permanent collection.
One of my watercolors, Tea Time, was among the submitted and selected pieces. This was the first time that I have submitted to Watercolor Wisconsin, so I feel very honored to now have my piece hanging at Wustum Museum until April 24, 2010.
In my haste to get the piece to Wustum before the deadline, I failed to snap a photo of it, so I will post that in April when the piece comes back home.
Watercolor Wisconsin 2009 runs from Dec. 13, 2009 to April 24, 2010. Wustum Museum is located at 2519 Northwestern Avenue, Racine, WI.
