The Sierra Watercolor Society returns to the Wilbur D. May Museum for their annual winter exhibition of original watercolor paintings. Local and regional artists were asked to ponder the communicative power of art. The result is the “Freedom of Expression” exhibition, featuring dozens of watercolor paintings that evoke the fluidity of interpretation. All paintings in the exhibition are available for purchase. Visitors are also invited to vote for their favorite painting to win the coveted “People’s Choice Award.”
