Studio Quercus is pleased to present Just Add Water, a survey of Bay Area artists who use water-based media on paper. The show, featuring works by eight artists with widely varied approaches, opens January 12 and concludes February 16.
Water-based work, employing watercolor, gouache, ink, or acrylic, traditionally has been used to explore ideas that might later be fully developed in oil on canvas. However, the spirit of experimentation and exploration that is associated with works on paper can be beautiful and inspiring, and is echoed by the artists featured in this show.
The featured artists — Amy Wilson Faville, John Fadeff, Michael Hall, Scott Hewicker, Alex Jackson, Carrie Lederer, Kara Maria, and Francesca Pastine — offer a broad overview of what is possible in water-based mediums.
