Vero Beach, Florida.- The Vero Beach Museum of Art is celebrating its recent acquisition of Andrew Wyeth’s “The Wales Farm” by making the work the centrepiece of an exhibition “In the Tradion of Wyeth: Contemporary Watercolor Masters” on view until January 15th 2012. The majority of the watercolors in the show are the work of living artists such as Kathy Caudill, Ray Ellis, William Matthews, Dean Mitchell, Alan Shuptrine, and Stephen Scott Young. While these masters of watercolor are great technicians,they embrace Andrew Wyeth’s sentiment that “to be interested solely in technique would be a very superficial thing . . . .” Without exception, they express great feeling in their work, while exploring the profound relationships between human beings and the world of the senses through their chosen medium.
