In November, 2021, the Idaho Watercolor Society Traveling Exhibition was destroyed in a fire that resulted from a tragic accident while the paintings were en route between venues. All 21 paintings were destroyed. The paintings were the award winners from the Idaho Watercolor Society’s annual exhibition. We present them here in tribute to the artists and their dedication to watercolor. Click here to view those paintings as a PDF file.
