Group Show by The Watercolor Artists of Sonoma County

July 1 through September 28, 2014

Opening reception Sunday July 13, 3-5pm

"WASCO is a wonderful organization, and we are extremely happy to be able to share our art
with the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation here in Heron Hall."

Watercolor Artists of Sonoma County, WASCO, is a watermedia organization founded in 1993 by a group of Sonoma County watercolor artists. The principal purpose of WASCO is to educate the public as to the many values of watercolor and to escalate the acceptance of watercolor as being an art form which should be sought and treasured along with other contemporary art forms. Monthly programs consist of demonstrations and lectures by well known and respected watercolor artists.

Every September WASCO has an annual juried show that is held in Coddingtown Mall in Santa Rosa. This show allows them to complete part of their mission by bringing art to the public with children as well as adults getting the opportunity to enjoy and talk about art. We also have a raffle to make enough money to fund at least one Santa Rosa Junior College art scholarship each year.

The artists in this exhibit are Linda Grainger, Marge Gray, Christine McNamara, Lucky Fillmore, Mara Farnworth, Susan Callagy, Tosya Shore, Joan Wale, Diana Liebe, Paula Peterson, and Rae Ann Williams.

For more information about WASCO, see their website.

Reward yourself by visiting this beautiful exhibit in Heron Hall Monday through Thursday, 9am-5pm. Because of the variety of uses of the hall during the week, please call ahead to make sure you can view the art (707-527-9277, x107). Another great time to view the art exhibit is during our Second Saturday of the Month Open Houses from 10am-3pm. They are FREE and open to the public.

Proceeds of art sales benefit the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

Heron Hall is located at the Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road (at the corner of Occidental Rd. and Sanford Rd.), Santa Rosa, CA 95401.
