Exhibition Romania in Watercolors 3

TNB Media Foyer hosts the 3rd national exhibition of watercolor painting Starting June 3, 2024, the third national exhibition of watercolor painting will commence in the Media Foyer of the NTB (Grand Hotel wing), under the title Romania in Watercolors 3 - organized by the Romanian Watercolor Painters Association (A.P.A. - IWS Romania), with the support of Globe Art Network (International Watercolor Society). More than 60 works signed by 49 watercolor artists are on display. The opening of the exhibition will take place on June 4, 2024 at 18:30. Special guest: soprano Felicia Filip who will perform a micro recital. The International Watercolor Society is a non-profit organization founded in 2012 by the Turkish artist, resident in Canada, Atanur Dogan, and since 2016 has been operating in Romania under the name of International Watercolor Society Romania (I.W.S. Romania), chaired by the artist arch Ovidiu Iovanel. I.W.S. was founded with the aim of promoting the oldest painting technique in the world, Watercolor. We quote from the "Mission Statement" of IWS Romania: "Our aim is to promote respect, peace and harmony through the use of art - the common language of the whole world. Our activities involve bringing together watercolor painters and lovers of art, of watercolor. Watercolor painting has long been neglected and even despised, to the detriment of other techniques. In order to bring the art of watercolor to the forefront as we grow, we are promoting and popularizing watercolor painting in every country. (...) We have embarked on a monumental task and success is only possible if we work together. So far we have succeeded. Thus, in our group in Romania there are more than 100 more or less known artists, professional or amateur. We show respect, practice courtesy and diplomacy at all times, listen to each other, are open to new ideas and welcome innovation." The exhibition will be open until the end of June 2024 and can be visited daily from 10.00 to 18.00.   Translated by Andreea Codrea-Boeriu
