Opportunities for Artists

Whistler in Watercolor
in the Freer|Sackler Galleries,
at the Smithsonian on the Mall in Washington, DC

May 18 to October 6, 2019

On Saturday, May 18, the Smithsonian is opening an exhibition, Whistler in Watercolor, featuring their collection of watercolors by James McNeill Whistler, the largest in the world, on view in its entirety for the first time in over a century. In conjunction with the exhibition, there is also the opportunity to join us for a free public roundtable discussion, Watercolor Rediscovered, next Sunday, May 19th, at 2pm at the Freer Gallery Meyer Auditorium. It is free and open to the public. Preceding the talk, at 1pm, will be a curator-led tour of the exhibition by exhibition curator Lee Glazer. This could be a great opportunity for VWS artists to visit the Whistler Exhibit when they visit the VWS exhibition in Lorton. KAS
