The Kingsport Art Guild partnered with the Friends of the Warriors’ Path State Park to sponsor Art/Ways, a show of water-related art.
The Art/Ways Show accompanies the Smithsonian Water/Ways Exhibit, a traveling interactive display demonstrating the way we use water – protect it and keep it pure. Kingsport is the first stop in this exhibit’s visits to six cities across the country.
The Art/Ways Show features over 30 original paintings and photographs by local artists. The show was judged by Vera Tracy, a mixed media artist whose work has been shown in national shows throughout the country. Her work has been published in art instruction books and Watercolor magazine. Here most recent awards include Best in Show at the Fletcher Exhibit at ETSU 2016 as well as Best in Show at Jonesborough Art Show 2015. She made the following awards:
“Bays Mountain Reservoir Rd.” Pencil, Elizabeth Brewer
“Reedy Creek” Watercolor by Judith Fitzgerald
“Reflections at Linear Trail” Oil, by Donna Bird.
The Art/Ways Show will run from June 30-August 6, 2017 at the Recreation Building on Duck Island, Warriors’ Path State Park.
