The Watercolour Society of Queensland's Annual Watercolour Exhibition returns to the Auditorium at Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens, from Friday 31st August to Sunday 2nd September 2018.

All are welcome to attend this all-ages event and entry is FREE.

Regarded as the largest watercolour exhibition in Queensland, this three day event showcases a diverse collection of winning paintings by Queensland's leading watercolourists.

There will be a wonderful range of watercolour artworks to discover including traditional and contemporary landscapes, seascapes, still life, abstract and portraits. Come along and see how talented our Queensland artists are with their own unique interpretation of watercolours.

Artist: Natasha Hodgson

Expect to view over 150 framed paintings on display, as well as unframed works, miniature paintings and cards. All displayed paintings will be available for sale at affordable prices, including original watercolour gift cards.

The standard of work is very high as this is a judging exhibition and winners will be announced on Opening Night on Friday, 31st August starting at 6.30pm.

You are invited to become a judge yourself and choose your favourite painting for the People's Choice Award. You can also go into the draw to win an original watercolour painting!

This is a popular event that attracts hundreds of art lovers and is a great opportunity for the wider community to come together and support and celebrate the work of talented local artists.

There will also be watercolour demonstrations daily from 10am - 11am and 1pm - 12pm. If you are feeling inspired you can have a go at the 'try me' table supported by Winsor and Newton products.
