Uncharted Waters: The Fine Art of Watercolor Painting

June 3 – September 10, 2017                                                                                    


Watercolor is a painting method that spans human history. Beginning with paintings on cave walls, watercolor’s great versatility allows it to be used for such diverse projects as ancient Egyptian tomb decorations, Asian silk paintings, and medieval illuminated manuscripts. Unpredictable and challenging, watercolors provide the opportunity for a variety of artworks dependent on the desires of the artist. With wonderfully varied examples drawn from the Museum collection, this exhibition celebrates the great range of the medium.

This exhibition is made possible by the CRST International Donor-

Advised Fund and the GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation

Donor-Advised Fund, both funds of the Greater Cedar Rapids

Community Foundation. Exhibition season support has been

provided by the Hotel-Motel Tax Fund, the Program Grant Fund of

the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, the Iowa Arts

Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and

the National Endowment for the Arts, members of the Cedar Rapids

Museum of Art, and contributors to the Museum’s Annual Fund.
