Lake Placid, NY: The Lake Placid Center for the Arts (LPCA) is proud to present The World Through Watercolor, a group art show comprised of four internationally recognized watercolor artists, from August 3 through September 15, 2018. This show highlights the mastery of the art form from Laurie Goldstein-Warren, Tim Saternow, Thomas Schaller and Sarah Yeoman. The public is invited to an opening reception on August 3 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the Gallery @ LPCA. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Admission is free.
This gathering of outstanding watercolors is a true celebration of the medium. The World Through Watercolor displays a wide range of work, from brilliantly colored landscapes, to still lifes, to architectural renderings and more.
This show is the brainchild of Sarah Yeoman. The recruitment of other three artists has been years in the making. As Yeoman describes, what started as entering in the same shows at the Salmagundi Club in New York and other American Watercolor Society exhibits, lead to mutual admiration for each other’s work and eventually has grown into friendship. When organizing The World Through Watercolor, the choice of artists was easy. Yeoman explained, “Each artist is so unique in their approach. This is what makes this show so special. No one else paints like they do.”
