Three members of Dare County Arts Council, Mary Edwards, Peggy Saporito and Bobby Wiltshire have been selected for the 2017 Watercolor Society of North Carolina’s 72nd statewide exhibition.
A total of 266 entries were submitted for this year’s exhibition, which will be on display at Greensboro College’s Anne Ruff Galyon and Irene Cullis Galleries in Greensboro, NC October 15- November 18, 2017.
“What an honor it is to be accepted into this year’s WSNC annual juried competition,” said watercolor artist Mary Edwards. “Thank you, WSNC, for making the annual art show and meeting fun and successful! Can’t wait for the art-filled weekend with internationally acclaimed artist Mary Whyte.”
Mary Whyte juried the show selecting 70 paintings for the annual exhibition. She is a watercolor artist, teacher and author whose figurative paintings have earned national and international recognition. Her portraits are in corporate, private and university collections, and in permanent collections of the South Carolina Greenville County Museum of Art and the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston.
“I am truly humbled and honored to have been juried into the 72nd Watercolor Society of NC Exhibition by Mary Whyte with my painting “Play Ball,” said watercolor artist Peggy Saporito. “As an outstanding writer, teacher and watercolor artist, I admire her accomplishments and talent and truly value her opinion as a juror.”
