Strathmore presents The Baltimore Watercolor Society’s 2011 Mid-Atlantic Regional Watercolor Exhibition, on view through May 21, 2011 in the Mansion at Strathmore.  The exhibition displays 95 original pieces of the finest in watercolor from Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.  These works, selected by juror John Salminen, come from a larger pool of 435 applicants. 

Founded in 1885, the Baltimore Watercolor Society is the third oldest organization in the country devoted to the use of watercolor as a painting medium.  The juror of this year's show, John Salminen, scaled the heights of the watercolor world in recent years with over 190 awards in national and international exhibitions. He will lead a spring workshop for BWS “Abstraction through Design” at The Howard County Center for the Arts.
